Levee Failure Tour

Yesterday we went on a levee failure tour in the Lower Ninth Ward. This area was devestated as the flood wall protecting it from the Industrial Canal catastrophically failed. The area has been very slow to recover, as many of the property lots still lie  empty, some with only concrete slabs indicating where houses used to be.
