Elevations in New Orleans
Here is another example of an elevation map.
This is a map of the population of New Orleans in 1878. Almost nothing would have been flooded if we had not expanded or grown since then. Here's a bigger map of the same thing.
Slidell bridge, Hwy 11 bridge, and rail road bridge after storm. THey picked up the pieces and had it back together within a month after the storm. These bridges are mainly put together like blocks. One piece just rests on another.
