Lower Ninth Ward
Late Wednesday afternoon, Andy gave a few of us a tour of some of the hardest hit parts of the city. The Lower Ninth Ward was flooded when the flood wall on the Industrial Canal failed -- the repaired section is shown here. Many of the affected homes have now been removed, leaving a barren landscape with a few original structures and a few new ones. The homes that are left bear the spray painted graffitti of the rescue workers and the waterlines from September, 2005.
