Who in their right mind thinks that the levees will be rebuilt, or be "shored up" enough to withstand a cat 3, 4 or 5 by next year? They say they will be by next storm season, But I doubt they will get it done.
The reality is that the Levees failed. Some were not built up to the designs and others just got overwhelmed passed their capabilities. What kind of stress was put on the whole system?
350 miles of levees arent going to be fixed in less than a year.... Hell, I bet they will still be talking about how best to fux it, let alone start anything meaniful....
Abandon New Orleans..... Give yourself a better life elsewhere.
