This is a storm surge.
This was what Katrina was like in St. Bernard Parish, La. -- Aug. 29, 2005.
This is why, when the authorities tell you to get your ass out of Dodge, you get your ass out of Dodge. And as we allow the Louisiana coastal wetlands to disappear, this is the fate awaiting some people who never took an inch of water from Katrina.
THERE ALWAYS will be another Katrina. Just like there was another Betsy, and another Camille.
And the next one just might blow through the wetlands that are no more and take out the port that delivers a third of the oil and gas to which you are currently addicted.
Happy motoring, America.
