And here as we topped the hill, was another ship, rocking in its moorings.
The Industrial Canal was at capacity by this point. Note the levee gate shown in each photo and the water bubbling up from beneath it.
Here we were right at ground zero for the destruction of a 30 block neighborhood. When the ship broke the levee during Katrina it sent a wave of water into the neighborhood behind the levee which literally swept the houses off their foundations and sent them flying a mile or more from where they started. Behind us were the empty fields with hundreds of foundations that had not been rebuilt at that time. A constant reminder of the potential danger of the location.
