Katrina - Then and Now 4 by Kicks02 Katrina - Then and Now 4 by Kicks02
August 29, 2005 - August 29, 2008

August 29th, 2008 marked the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the flooding of New Orleans. Much has been repaired or rebuilt, and much and not, and there is also some neglect. On this day I toured the Lakeview area of New Orleans and took photos of this neighborhood’s progress.

Lakeview was hit hard with flood waters when the 17th Street Canal breeched on August 29, 2005. Houses were flooded to the roofs, some were washed away; cars floated away; gas lines burst into flames; and people died.

On this third anniversary we are under threat of yet another hurricane. This one's name is Gustav and predicted to hit in a few days. People are already evacuating and roads out of the state are congested.

I’m posting a few collages I made with the photos from three years ago and today.

That bottom left shot, with the water rippling out, is superb. I commend you for taking the trouble to document all this...
