Over the past four months I have had a lot of people from outside New Orleans boggled by what had happened. Even in NYC, a place no stranger to parlyzing disaster, they failed to understand the sheer scope of what had happened. Here is a link to an animated map of the city that shows the water. Where, when and how deep it was from an aeriel view. Take a look, see what 80% really means…..

Postscript: As you will see in the comments this representation is incomplete.Yes, thats right there is additional flooding that is not shown in this graphic. Thanks to Editor B and an Anonymous poster for giving me the heads up.
