Aftermath: Gets “Huge Play” On CNNI

CNN Africa correspondent Jeff Koinange was vacationing in North Carolina when the network asked him to cut the trip short and report on Katrina, Peter Johnson reports.

“The hurricane has received huge play on CNN International and is of tremendous interest internationally, Koinange says.”

“I get at least 100 e-mails at the end of every day from viewers who say, ‘Wow, this is America? Are you sure you’re not making it up or reporting from Somalia and not somewhere else?’ They simply cannot believe it.”
