Tour: "Levee Breaches during Katrina"
Both residents and visitors to New Orleans still have the desire to see where the levees failed during Katrina in August 2005. This tour allows one to virtually "visit" three major breach sites and their associated neighborhoods. The sites include the Southeast breach of the Industrial Canal, which flooded the Lower Ninth Ward, the East breach of the London Avenue Canal, which flooded Gentilly, and the 17th Street Canal breach, which flooded Lakeview.
The tour also spotlights the Louisiana State Museum's "Living with Hurricanes" exhibit, which is housed in the Presbytere Building, Jackson Square.
