New Orleans After Hurricane Katrina

I HAVE WRITTEN A STORY UNDER ALMOST EVERY PHOTO.
A Category 5 hurricane named Katrina struck New Orleans on August 29, 2005 and peeled the face off a glorious City.
The City was hit by the tropical storm force winds and rain of Hurricane Rita 4 weeks later.
The flooding caused in eighty per cent of the City was not caused directly from rain in Hurricane Katrina but from breaks in canal floodwalls. Water poured in from Lake Pontchartrain which had been pushed in from the Gulf of Mexico. The cause of the breaks is due to poor maintenance and poor design by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and the local public governing bodies.
Even though mandatory evacuation had been ordered by the governor and the mayor of New Orleans, many failed to heed the urgent warnings and chose to stay. Many drowned because of this and thousands were rescued from attics and rooftops where they fled to avoid the water. It was an overwhelming catastrophe and rescue efforts were constant for days by local, state and federal teams.
The first 24 photos in this gallery are random photos taken on occasions when I was permitted into the City which is heavily guarded by military troops. Most of them are posted just as they came out of my camera as I do not have time to edit. My own home had a foot of water in it.
And, through September 26, 2005 I have posted the nicest photos that show little damage. More photos will follow in days to come. There are many more photos in the gallery "Katrina Was No Lady"
IF YOU CLICK ON THE SMALL PHOTO YOU WILL GET A LARGE PHOTO. THERE IS A NARRATIVE UNDER EACH PICTURE EXPLAINING SOME DETAIL.
ALL PHOTOS ARE COPYRIGHTED AND CANNOT BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM ME.
