People living in the New Orleans, Louisiana are like in a trap. The city lies below sea level and it’s still sinking (…agriculture)! Thousands of people live more than 2 metres below sea level surrounded by the waters of the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrai. It may seem water was waiting for an opportunity to destroy New Orleans. It happend. Hurricane Katrina attacked on August 29, 2005. Everyone around the World knows what Katrina did to people and cities of Louisiana…
The Hurricane Katrina Disaster Viewer went live Saturday, September 3, 2005, and will remain available indefinitely in the wake of Hurricane Katrina
The data presented in the viewer is provided directly by public and commercial organizations such as FEMA and the U.S. Postal Service
Red colour on the maps symbolize area of catastrophic damage of New Orleans under water! Terrifying! More maps and photos are in Hurricane Katrina gallery
The most important question today is Will it happen again?. I really would not want to be forced to ask myself such questions. I wish Louisiana good luck and no hurricane and any other kind of disasters again!
