Levee breach, New Orleans / photo Kathie Cranford
"The second photo is of the largest, most devastating breach along the Industrial Canal which obliterated much of the ninth ward. (It was up this levee that Prince Charles and Camilla climbed when they visited last month.) The break must have come with great force and violence because everything is smashed to smithereens for blocks around. Several blocks away, whole houses were moved off their foundations and were washed into the streets where they sit today, blocking the way."
