New Orleans is still devastated, why the hell should this area be treated at better?
$123 Billion has been set aside for New Orleans, over $90 Billion of which has been spent.
Nearly 7 Years Later, New Orleans is still working at recovery.
I'm broken hearted for the people affected by Sandy, really, but it's not a unique situation.
And notice none of us said to NY/NJ — "you built a city right on the ocean, you need to close it down and move it".
Building a city near a body of water is quite different from building a city BELOW sea level and using a fragile system of levees that aren't equipped for a major hurricane to keep the water out of it.
Sandy was a disaster that surprised a lot of people…..Katrina was an unfortunate example of how simple physics works.
You CANNOT fight the ocean/gulf. It's going to win every single time. When your house is near sea level, only a monster storm surge will wash it out…..when your house is BELOW sea level….GRAVITY will wash it out.
It wasn't even a hurricane when it landed, AND people had a week to prepare. Just wait until the Obama economic collapse.
New Orleans east looks like that today…7 years later. I have no pity for these people.
As horrible as Sandy was, there are areas in upstate NY still trying to rebuild from Irene.
#4 – wow.
