New Orleans' Industrial Canal Levee Breach - Ninth Ward of New Orleans
New Orleans, Louisiana
This barge broke loose from its moorings and topped the levee of the Industrial Canal, smashing whatever was in its wake in the neighborhood. It is known that two people died in the house that existed where the barge now sits.
This shot was taken on the day that Mayor C. Ray Nagin of New Orleans made his also "infamous" speech of "the chocolate city."
