Has anyone come across an infographic or other online diagram of the layout of New Orleans which includes both the surrounding geography and the levees and dams that protect New Orleans from that geography? I’ve had my eye out for one on all the major news sites all day, and haven’t found anything that helps me understand the exact threats that might put the city underwater for the next six months or so.


I just came across this infographic courtesy of the LA Times, as well — it’s a guess as to what caused the 17th Street Canal levee breach, and it’s a good look at how hard it is to patch the hole.
