New Orleans is a disaster waiting to happen and this hurricane is probably going to demonstrate why that is. New Orleans is 15 feet below sea level, on the coast surrounded by water on 3 sides. With the right storm surge conditions it could instantly fill with water in a way that the dikes that normally protect it could actually hold the water in.
I’m definitely glad I’m not living there as I sit on the adge of the San Andreas fault watching it on TV.
If you are still in New Orleans and reading this – GET THE FUCK OUT OF THERE AS FAST AS YOU CAN !!!!
