Spot the difference

Dear firend,

Just a quick snippet.

The US Army Corps of engineers has published some interactive maps for residents of New Orleans showing how their flood risk profile has changed since Katrina, almost two years ago.

Residents can check out the before and afters for 1-in-50, 1-in-100 and 1-in-500 year events

I thought I’d check out the French quarter

Trouble is – it looks like nothing much has changed — even for the city’s most famous and prestigious district.

I then started to wonder - if the good engineers can’t do anything for this world-famous area – what hope is there for anywhere else ?
