Louisiana Superdome, where thousands were stranded after Katrina, is likely to be torn down, state official tells CNN.
BATON ROUGE – Although there are electrical problems and some floodwaters still standing in the Superdome, state officials Tuesday said the future of the building is still undetermined.
But they did say this: Damages to the structure could hit $400 million – and it’s not likely the facility could even be used for at least a year.
Superdome Commission Chairman Tim Coulon said the Dome will hire engineers and other consultants to do an assessment of the structural stability and other aspects of the stadium. That will be done in the next few weeks, Coulon said.
