Flash Point: A Point No One Is Making

In 2005, Katrina, a category 5 hurricane devastated new Orleans. A primary cause of the damage was the fact that many of the levees protecting the city were breached. Seven years later, New Orleans is hit by Isaac which appears to be either a tropical storm (not a hurricane) or a category 1 hurricane at most. Yet we read: Hurricane Isaac: waters top levee near New Orleans.

The point we haven’t heard made is that after seven years of preparation, New Orleans still cannot take even a category 1 hurricane without levee problems. The questions this raises are when will it be able to withstand a hurricane of any size and will it ever be able to?
