Here We Go Again !

We never thought that it would happen again, much less only 3 years later. Most people who lost everything, to the flood ravaged area during Hurricane Rita, had really just started to get back to normal. It seems that with most of Louisiana's marsh land gone, after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, in 2005', that there is nothing to stop the destructive storm surge from inundating the coastal areas of Louisiana.

Anyone who has seen the pictures of the devastation in Galveston, Texas can see the power of a direct hit with the latest breed of storms that the Gulf Coast has endured, in recent years. We too, must build a seawall, new levees, and replenish our wetlands or face the possibility of flooding again, with each big storm that comes our way.
