11/16- Beyond the Flood

What lessons did residents and state officials learn from this historic event and what challenges remain?

The August floodwaters that inundated South Louisiana have receded and the recovery continues. What lessons did residents and state officials learn from this historic event and what challenges remain? What federal aid is still available for homeowners and renters and how should the state disburse it? How can the state help to ensure that poor and affluent neighborhoods recover equally? What impact should the floods have on building standards, mitigation and prevention? And could jumpstarting stalled diversion projects prevent a similar disaster in the future? WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2016

Our Panelists:

We want to know your opinion! Leave your comments in the box below.


They are completely avoiding the topic of how to avoid flood in the future,
such as removing the I-12 barrier, and finishing the Comite diversion project. 
Very disappointing.
