The governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, says “everyone needs to leave New Orleans due to flooding from Hurricane Katrina“. The refugees that were held up in the Lousiana Super Dome are now be relocated to the Houston AstroDome. The NO Super Domeaftermath of Hurricane Katrina is beyond anyone’s imagination. It is just impossible to imagine that an entire city let alone Gulf Coast area has to be relocated.

The governor of Louisiana says everyone needs to leave New Orleans due to flooding from Hurricane Katrina. “We’ve sent buses in. We will be either loading them by boat, helicopter, anything that is necessary,” Gov. Kathleen Blanco said. Army engineers trying to plug New Orleans’ breached levees struggled to move giant sandbags and concrete barriers into place, and the governor said Wednesday the situation was growing more desperate and there was no choice but to abandon the flooded city.
