New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward After Hurricane Katrina

The lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans is in an older part of the city where most of the houses are made of cypress in the shotgun or double shotgun style and are built on brick piers some three to four feet off the ground.
When the powerful water from the levee breaks of the Industrial Canal swept through this area it also swept many houses off their piers.
Today, January 16, 2006, four and one-half months after Katrina the area is still a disaster zone. There is no electricity, hardly one house left intact, and not much cleanup has been done. The City wants to bulldoze the houses that are just splinters but the homeowners are fighting every step of the way. The shock has been too much for them and only time will bring realization. Some yards are just heaps of pieces of houses, a roof, a window, a door, a brightly painted table. The force of water had its way.
And, just as in the gallery I did of Lakeview, I keep asking "where are all the people who lived here?"
SO, IF THE REST OF THE WORLD THINKS THAT NEW ORLEANS IS BACK TO NORMAL, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THIS GALLERY.
