Now I am not sure seeing as how it is an aerial view, but isn’t that the levee that ended up flooding the 9th Ward? This is a NASA satellite photo clearly showing a barge thrown up on top of “a levee south of New Orleans”
Someone see if you can verify the exact location this photo is showing, I am lousy at that sort of geographic verification. Still, even if it isn’t, this is a hell of a pic:
I mention it because of the rumors (we all know about rumors and veracity) going around the net that a barge was responsible for the original breach. Just Google “Barge Levee,” and you’ll find tons of them. Help out with the research, only verifiable facts are valid.
