FEMA is expecting: 1 million (yes, million) homeless for the next year as a result of this storm 50,000 dead NO underwater for 8 months
Engineers have put it at 60/40 that the Superdome even survives this storm (yes, do the math on those inside if the 40% turns out to be right)
Army Corps of Engineers says subtract 3 ft. from all the levee heights you've heard on the news - the levees were built in the 60s, and avg. subsistation in La. since then adds up to the levees "settling" approximately 3.5 ft. lower than their stated heights
FEMA has put half its man power available nationwide on standby for the aftermath
I fing it hard to believe that a organization like FEMA that is suppose to be helping people would make a statemnt on predicting how many people would die.
