  •  10 foot of water expected tonight! (none)
    During the day today one high groud roadway was what protected  the french quarter. They are expecting the levil of water in the city to rise another ten feet overnight and do not see how the levi can be repaired for another 30 hours when the water flow stops due to a balancing of water levels.

    Tomorrow we can expect the ebtire city to be flooded and by Thursday morning no place will have less then 10 feet of standing water. The historic district buildings, along with almost everything else is expected to become condemned property due to foundational weekening from sustained flooding.

    New Orleans will have to be totally rebuilt, I expect two thirds of the residents to take insurance settlements and build elsewhere.

    I'm afraid that it will take twenty years to rebuild the city.

    It"s about the accountability, stupid.
