Thinking about New Orleans 4 years after Katrina

New Orleans Now and Then

Watching the tropical storms and hurricane firing up this season in both Pacific and Atlantic, I noticed that my posts 4 years ago reflected on Hurricane Katrina as it first came ashore on the east coast of Florida and then returned to power its way into New Orleans (my blog posts 1, 2, 3, 4 from 2005). Since reflecting I also noticed several news outlets doing the same and publishing 4th anniversary articles on the substantial rebuilding of this historic city. Let’s hope the efforts are not in vain since sea levels are still rising and powerful storms still brew — currently Hurricane Jimena.
