The Truth about the New Orleans Flood
New Orleans did not flood this time because the Army Corps of Engineers seems to have fixed its egregious mistakes.
This time, there was a surge barrier east of the city to keep storm surge out of the Industrial Canal. This time, there were gates with auxiliary pumps at the city's outfall drainage canals to keep surge out of the city's heart.
This time, Greater New Orleans had a system authorized in 1965 that should have been in place seven years ago. But many other residents of south Louisiana endured tremendous flooding from Isaac's surge.
We invite our supporters to please consider offering hope to the victims of the LaPlace flooding. Beacon of Hope, one of our allied organizations, has launched a support drive today.
By empowering residents to participate in their own recovery, Beacon of Hope provides a hub of information and resources for disaster victims. Beacon of Hope is suggesting financial donations, contributions or volunteers.
The victims of the Federal Flood of 2005 know how it feels to endure a disaster due to no fault of theirs. This is why we suggest turning our attention to the victims in LaPlace. I mailed a check this morning.
Thank you for your support of Levees.org.
With your help, we're winning.
