New Orleans, Katrina, and the Gulf Coast

A Listmania! list by Philip W. Henry (Rialto, CA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "The Gulf Coasts of Louisiana and Mississippi sustained enormous damage from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Images of people stranded in the Superdome and submuerged houses are still fresh in our minds.
The story became a political nightmare for the Bush Administration.
In May of 2010, an oil platform operated by British Petroleum ruptured and burned, killing eleven workers and causing the worst environmental disaster since the Exxon Valdex oil spill."
