Flash timeline/animation of Katrina flooding

From the Times-Picayune

This is pretty interesting, and sad at the same time.
Houston is still full of Katrina refugees, most of who will never go back prolly. :(

Such a horrible disaster.

It's easy to forget about such a thing unless you experienced it first-hand.

Yup. I have family(one cousin, two aunts and an uncle) that lost everything! 10 feet of water in their homes. Two of which just bought a home here in Houston, all 4 of which are never going back.
The family thats still there(that didnt get flooded out) are still cleaning up. One of my cousins families just got electricity back about 2 weeks ago.
My folks have been back several times now and say it's like a ghost town. Vast stretches of empty neighborhoods, rubble everywhere. Miles of pitchblack neighborhoods at night.

:( :( :(
