Floodwaters Rise in New Orleans as Rescuers Search for Survivors

NYT        August 30, 2005

 

NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 30 -

With parts of this city under 20 feet of water

and a death toll in the region

that is reported at 55 and certain to climb,

the Gulf Coast began today to confront the aftermath

of one of the most devastating storms ever to hit the United States.

 

The waters of Lake Ponchartrain continued to rise

and spill over into already flooded areas of New Orleans

when two levees collapsed

after Katrina tore through the area on Monday.

 

Mayor C. Ray Nagin said in a television interview

that the city was 80 percent under water,

in some places 20 feet deep.

With hospitals closing down,

no running water or electricity in most parts of the city,

health risks intensifying and looters running rampant in places,

Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco of Louisiana said

officials had no choice but to try to clear everyone out of New Orleans.

Higher Death Toll Seen; Police Ordered to Stop Looters

NYT    September 1, 2005

 

NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 1 -

Evacuees escaping the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina

trickled in to Texas today from New Orleans,

a city gripped by chaos as looters ran wild,

food and water supplies dwindled,

and bodies floated in the floodwaters.

The evacuation of the Superdome began and officials said

there was no choice but to abandon the city devastated

by the hurricane, perhaps for months.

President Bush pledged vast assistance but acknowledged,

"This recovery will take years."

When the Levee Broke

 

After hurricane Katrina,

a levee along the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal broke,

allowing water to flow toward New Orleans.

The water level in New Orleans continues to rise,

forcing the evacuation of thousands of residents,

many of whom took refuge in the Superdome
