Thanks Captain for the report. Though I live 350mi away, it still troubles me that N.O. may get clobbered, again.  The pumps can handle more capacity than before. Don't know the details but when a quarter inch of water is detected, the pumps start up. The main reason Katrina did so much damage was the levees giving way and allowing the incredible amount of water in. The pumps could not handle the 'second' deluge and were easily overwhelmed. There are new pumps installed and built higher up than the older ones. Now if they can convert swamp ground into cement that would at least help the fight. Even with the spillways open, water will always find the lowest point to pool. The Big Easy could very well be the new Atlantis if it keeps on sinking.

Missed it. Please delete, as well.

Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time...
