    the rep interviewed on wwltv said that they will be reassessing this levee and others because of this storm.

    EVERY person assessing it - from weather persons, politicians, professionals, media are ALL saying that this is a freak storm!  it didn't follow any previous model of any previous storm.

    that people didn't listen to the mandatory evac orders was because prior cat one storms didn't cause a problem is also being discussed on how hurricanes are rated in the future.

    the categories are based on wind-speed only - not on storm surge or flooding.  that will change!
