Gustav Has Arrived

As Hurricane Gustav pounds the Gulf, I want to send my thoughts and prayers to those affected.

It seems that the same levy that breached in 2005 (the Industrial Canal Levee) in New Orleans has again breached, though in a different area than before.

Again, the 9th Ward is beginning to flood.

It is my hope that enough lessons were learned from Hurricane Katrina that we will not see even a fraction of the devastation we previously witnessed.

I worry- hearing that many of the levees were never fully repaired from 2005, and those that were worked on, were merely built back up to pre-Katrina levels.

Hopefully we are not set to witness history repeat itself.
