    9/26/02 USA Today article about New Orleans flood from tropical storm w/prediction

    Almost exactly 3 years ago, a minor "tropical storm" created flooding in New Orleans and along with that report was a almost precise report on exactly what is now happening via the predictions of all the experts.

    ""I think things are going remarkably well," Tullier said. "This could have been the big one, but it's not, thank God"

    http://www.usatoday.com/weather/news...ns-isidore.htm

    Also, there was a PBS documentary within the last 3-5 years that I watched that showed exactly what is happening today... Exactly......

    This has to be the most predicted flood in history.

    Rebuild on that land.......foolish, but they probably will, although if all those New Orleans buildings need to be rebuilt in the French Quarter, it will be just like some Disneyland set without character.
    Solution 1. Move the city.
    Solution 2. Haul in a zillion tons of dirt, then rebuild
    Solution 3. Recreate the French Quarter in Las Vegas and move everyone and everything else to Arkansas.......make it a federal Indian Reservation, allow gambling, and make Bill Clinton the Chief.

    Sheesh, this is crazy. Almost as crazy as peeps taking flying lessons and not caring how to land.
    Taking it easy for all you sinners.

    and the next time there is a big earthquake in CA or Japan, are you going to trot out the same tired logic and predictions?

    Someone at some time said that these areas are vulnerable, they've dodged the ullet this time but next time..next time..

    and they didn't prepare for it

    they didn't uproot their lives, and start over elsewhere because it's gonna happen..

    No, we should move everybody from the Florida coast, well, I guess all Florida. And Mississipi too. Don't forget Alabama! oh and all those tornados. People should move immediately. You see, they are fool people, living there, and you know New Orleans is just the Quarter anyway. I mean, you take Bourbon Street somewhere else and the moving is done.

    Well, I have to leave, but since Anchorage is in a seismic zone and we have already been hit by a bad earthquake we are going to move the city away.
