Storm Cycle: Flood Walls

3:18

This depicts the 17th St. Canal breach & resulting loss of 60,000 homes. Canals were excavated long ago to drain swamps & create more land. The steel sheeting in the walls was not driven down deep enough & the funds the Army Corps of Engineers got to correct this were used by the Bush admin. for Iraq. The failure of these walls is "the largest civil engineering disaster in the history of the U.S."
