    Here's some information to provide some prespective into what's actually being done to try to get the levees plugged around New Orleans.

    Let's give these guys some credit for doing a lot of hard work under adverse conditions.

    Hmm, I wonder how quickly flood waters would be stopped in DC in case of a Cat4 hurricance hitting the city and flooding the known flood plain on which the city is built. Do you think it would take four days?

    I place NO blame on the courageous workers, none. The blame goes higher up.

    By the way DC is not below sea level just in case you have been out of the country too long. :D

    Is that four days to pump it dry or four days to flood it?

    Don't make me start using those "media" words!

    Depends on how good a plan they have in effect and how good the people are that implement it It also depends on how much of the surrounding area was destroyed or flooded.

    It could very well take 4 days to get the National Guard on the ground if they had to come from hundreds of miles away and all the airports in the DC area were flooded.

    </font>[/QUOTE]You really think it would take four days to get the National Guard to DC? I realise it is above sea level, but it is still reclaimed swamp land which flooded regularly until the land was built up in the early 19th century. A Cat4 storm would have a huge affect of DC.
