Biggest disaster since the civil war? That statement ruined it for me. Don't forget hurricane Katrina. And if you're calling the civil war a
disaster, then let's not forget 9/11. Many horrific events have surpassed the flood you speak of.
As for this flood not making the headlines, I think it did make some stations. You just have the oil rig mess and the market crash going on right now.
When it involves a huge loss of money, you know the media will be all over it. Also, 30 deaths isn't that big of a deal. If it was risen to ...let's
say 90, then maybe it'll be newsworthy. I'm not saying I agree with that, just saying that's how it rolls.
