"Our worst fears came true"

New Orleans Levee breached

"Our worst fears came true," said Maj. Barry Guidry of the Georgia National Guard.
"We have three significant breaches in the levee and the water is rising rapidly," he said. "At daybreak I found substantial breaks and they've grown larger."...

Dozens of blocks in the Ninth Ward were under water as a waterfall at least 30 feet wide poured over and through a dike that had been used to patch breaks in the Industrial Canal levee.

This comes after a bus taking elderly residents away from Texas exploded, killing at least 24.

I keep thinking - a year after Charley and Ivan, "rebuild" concerts were still going on...
Pray for the coast. We need it.
