Two reporters for The New Orleans Times-Picayune rode bikes through the part of the city I used to live in on the afternoon of the day that Katrina hit.
|Bicycling into the heart of the flood: A Hurricane Katrina remembrance|
For me, the most interesting points are:
- 0:20 - these cars 6 blocks from where we used to live.
- 1:40 - this bridge is 2 blocks from where I used to live.
- 2:00 - the left hand turn of the cooler he describes is either down our old street, or one street to the north.
- 3:20 - mentions 5 feet of water on my old street.
