They were not over 200mph when they hit this city. Maybe in Lower Plaquemine, but I doubt it still, the imagery would have shown that. Where ya' at,
The levees are what destroyed the city. The flooding.
Everone talks about New Orleans, but they forget about the surrounding areas that are not even there anymore. Such as lower Plaquemines Parish (Where
I am from) and St. Bernard. Those people were not rescued for weeks after the storm. WEEKS!
You expected otherwise? Come on now! This is the media we are talking about, and they are going for the sensational part! Though I am going to tell
you right now, cher, this was not nearly the same as what you could have experienced down there, and not nearly the same scale of a humanitarian
They were stranded there. St. Bernard is no more. Everything was flooded.
Funny, I ate in the Parish the other day, and it is more. It is coming back, and it is going to thrive
because the will of the people is
The levees were not blown. I can assure you that.
And how could you? You were in Plaquemines Parish
You wouldn't have heard a boom if it slapped ya with Boudreaux's paddle!
Engineers who designed the levee's a long time ago lied about there strength. The government was paying them for CAT 4 levees and they only
built CAT 3.
No, most reports show that they knew they couldn't withstand even a 3 due to the fact that they were built upon a peat mound and were not even
supported enough to hold.
The levee's broke 24 hrs after Katrina hit. There was no flooding the day Katrina hit (I say day because it made landfall at 5am).
Come on! Please stop now! Give Me A Break
I will tell you, I'm waiting for my first Plaquemine's satsuma from Becnel's, too. But don't come on here and put information up that isn't even
accurate. Someone from here can see through it, but people from out of town can't always.
We want them to understand what happened, not to be more
confused that the government already allowed them to be.
