The end of Monday’s NBC Nightly News included gripping memories of Katrina from “the men and women of NBC News,” in their own words. Click play to view the video.

Correspondent Don Teague said: “The most powerful thing I experienced in person was at the freeway interchange where they were bringing survivors… Within two days, there were 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 people all huddling together waiting to be rescued again. As we left the neighborhood they were mad that we were leaving. I couldn’t say help was on the way. I couldn’t say we’ll be right back. And I don’t think I have ever felt more helpless than that moment.”
