Katrina August 29, 2005
|This apartment belonged to a friend of mine. It was about 3 blocks from the London Ave. levee break right near UNO. The water came up to the ceiling in his apartment. It receeded some within a week but stayed at about 5 feet for weeks after that. It was at the corner of Paris Ave. and Robert E. Lee Blvd.
|Almost everyone put their smelly refrigerator's out. There is no way to imagine the smell of a refrigerator or freezer that had been without electricity and in the heat for 3 or more weeks. The ones that were flooded were even worse. The whole city smelled.
|Part of the insides of someone's house. All the houses out this way looked like this a few days after the people came back.
|Inside of flooded computer.
|Back of computer.
