New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina:

The 17th Street Canal stretches southward, the boundry between Jefferson and Orleans Parishes in Louisiana. This aerial photo was taken Sunday, September 4, 2005. The bridge in the foreground (The Old Hammond Highway Bridge, undergoing a rebuilding before the storm) enabled Army Corps of Engineers contracts to drive sheet piling to close off the canal from Lake Ponchartrain. The Lake Pontchartrain end of the Canal is just over block distant off the lower left edge of the photo. Looking down the canal the breach into Orleans Parish is visible. The skyline of the New Orleans Central Business District lies in the distance. In the front center left, the pilings are all that remain of locally famous Sid-Mar's Seafood Restaurant, destroyed by the storm. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo by Alan Dooley)
