I recently spoke to a friend from Mississippi who insists that New Orleans was never hit for Cat 3 hurricane winds, but only Cat.1. According to her, the levees were already leaking *before* the storm hit. (I also heard that some barge hit one of the levees and that this was never investigated).
Does anyone here know what force winds New Orleans actually experienced?
