Katrinia was a cat 5 in the ocean. At one point it would
have been a cat 6 if the scale had gone that high. I have
read that the weather folks are thinking about adding
a cat 6 because the hurricanes are getting stronger.
Katrinia was 'just' a cat 3 when it made landfall and yet
the levys still broke. So all the experts who said the levys
were built to withstand a cat 3 were wrong.
New Orleans shouldn't be rebuilt. Allow nature to take
back the swamps and next time hurricanes come through
the surge won't be so bad because the ocean side swamps
are what suck up the surge.
Most folks are relocating and starting new lives elsewhere.
Let 'em go and let the planet have back the land/swamp.
