Final word, these things happen, everywhere all the time. The best you can do is try to move on a rebuild your life the best you can. Living anywhere is like a roll of the dice, unfortunatly, the people of New Orleans lost this time.

Found some useful information on the net, supporting tim1977's views:
"The Bush administration first overruled development regulations that were designed to protect the wetlands south of the city that for centuries worked to blunt the storm surge of these typhoons. Then it proceeded to cut the federal funding for dike repair and improvement on the levies that hold the Mississippi and Lake Pontchartrain out of the city, most of which is 10-20 feet below sea level. To make matters worse, the White House didn`t only divert dike funding to its Iraq War; it also diverted a third of Louisiana`s National Guard troops, as well as almost all their amphibious vehicles, which would have proved invaluable at getting into the flooded area to rescue victims quickly, to the Iraqi desert."
