The Worst

The worst destruction that we saw was in the lower 9th ward. There, a barge got loose of its moorings during the hurricane and slammed into a canal wall. The barge still sits where it ran aground. The neighborhood is totally destroyed. We saw only one house still standing. The rest were hardly recognizable as homes. Smashed houses, upside down cars and fallen trees were all that were left. There is nothing for these folks to go home to. Some can't even find where there house once stood.
