Myway news has an AP report that the broken levee in New Orleans has been repaired.
Thank God the water is finally beginning to recede. That broken levee was the real disaster. Moreso than the initial storm. Monday morning we thought a bullet had been dodged. Tuesday the levee broke and then all hell broke loose. That may explain (but not excuse) the slow responce on the part of the Feds.
The mayor of New Orleans is predicting 10,000 dead.
No doubt Mayor Nagin knows his city better than I, but I'm willing to go out on a limb and predict less than 1,000 dead. My prediction is based on nothing but God's mercy.
