For anyone who has missed it and assumed the worst had passed... A day after Katrina and conditions are actually worsening in NO and the area. Levee breaks and rising water are now a problem on top of the damage. Damaged and flooding roads are limiting access. Gas leaks are now a problem. Water is not sanitary.
Living conditions (for thousands) in the Superdome are deteriorating. No AC.
3,000 pound sandbags are being used to try and close a break in the levee at the 17th Street canal.
