New Orleans flooding

This photo was part of the morning brief the Commandant of the Coast Guard received 31 August 2005. Photo shows Katrina survivors underway in a pleasure craft with interstate ramps covered in water. Water height is nearly to traffic signals!

 

Please note: while this photo was used in a brief to the Commandant, there's an excellent chance the junior officer who built the brief took it off the wire. I didn't take it. It's likely copyrighted. I post it here under "fair use" and as a public service, letting you -- the public -- know about the dire situation in New Orleans.
