The St. Bernard area of New Orleans had no protection from the tidal serge come from the right of the map. Too much of the wetlands have been destroyed so a wall of water 10 – 20 feet high flooded this area and remained for weeks. Construction abounds in this area, but with no protection from a levee, barrier, or wetlands, it is only time before another weather incident devastates this area. Many believe this area should not be rebuilt. Here is a short photo montage of some of the good and not-so-good goings on in the St. Bernard area.
