Eery words from a radio show in September, 2002:
Do you expect this kind of hurricane’this kind of flooding’will hit New Orleans in our lifetime?
“Well I would say the probability is yes,” says Suyahada. “In terms of past experience, we’ve had three storms that were near misses’that could have done at least something close to this.”
Basically, the part of New Orleans that most Americans’most people around the world’think is New Orleans, would disappear.
