Remembering Katrina

Don't know if this is the right place for this. It can be moved if necessary.


Found this old video I took back in 2005...
For your info....

That must have been living through hell.

Thanks for sharing this vid.

My wife and I had a tour of New Orleans in 2008, and to see the damage and to hear the stories was incredible.  Seeing the houses with the x's on the front indicating whether anyone one was found dead in them was an eye opener.  Seeing the houses where people had used axes to get up on their roofs to survive was shocking.

It wasn't fun but at least we know now how woefully unprepared government was. Total failure from power/services police presence just to name a few.

New Orleans was fine after Katrina. It was the poorly maintained leavees that failed that caused all the damage. New Oreleans was missed by the brunt of Katrina. It came on land in Plaquemies parish and then crossed over to St. Bernard parish. New Orleans got all the publicity because of the flooding.

I would agree totally.  The damage I saw was not from wind. It was all from flooding.

The parishes where the levies did not breach were fine.

Not to mention Mobile Bay and that area got hammered also; let us hope that never happens again

They should follow Japan or Holland's lead then.

You guys here would get them sorted out.

When they're built correctly AND maintained properly, earth leavees work just fine!

There's been other powerful hurricanes down here without leavee breaches. The COE did not maintain the leavee properly at the 17th street canal. Upon further inspection, some were built with shoddy materials.

On my tour, the fellow showing us around, commented that the disaster was not an act of god, it was a man-made disaster because of the lack of maintenance.  The folks were quite bitter.  The pumping stations were not working correctly either as I remember.

Yes a lackadaisical attitude played apart, but there had been predictions that if a storm came up the river, there would be 20ft of water in NO. So it wasn't like they weren't prepared. All on the shoulders of COE!
