Our Hearts and Prayers go out to all KATRINA Victims and Survivors.
“Exactly ten years ago today, levees designed and built by the federal government failed catastrophically during Hurricane Katrina and flooded New Orleans and nearby St. Bernard Parish. Since then, the survivors were often blamed for their misfortune. In response, Levees.org has been doggedly correcting the myths and pushing the facts.
The flooding during Katrina was not due to 1) a monster storm, 2) the city’s geography or 3) local corruption.
The flooding was due to mistakes in levee design and construction by the Army Corps of Engineers.
