Flood Proofing Cities


Storm That Drowned a City homepage

Launch slide show Flood Proofing Cities

Engineers, hurricane experts, and others tasked with rebuilding New Orleans' flood barriers are studying the innovative technological solutions that other flood-prone cities have come up with. While the situation in New Orleans is unique and will require a unique solution, elements of existing or proposed flood defenses in Holland, Venice, London, St. Petersburg, and even San Antonio, Texas may provide inspiration. Click on the image at left to begin a slide show of flood-proofing efforts in these locations. —Lexi Krock
