Ms. Speedy Elf - you are so right! It SHOULD be top priority! Someone told me that there were millions and millions of dollars spent (was it by the Army Corps of Engineers? I don't remember who spent the money. But now it is coming out that the money was all wasted - because the repairs were done wrong....? Does anybody understand what happened? I am ashamed to say I wasn't really paying attention when it was mentioned...

But, I think we can all agree that we WISH it had been done right in the last three years, if not before!!

It is bad enough of how FEMA treated these people .

I remember right didn't they recently find out that donation's of house hold good's and such that were supposed to of been given to the Katrina victims were found stocked up in a warehouse ,rather than being distributed.

What is wrong with our goverment????????

Hate to be the bearer of bad news

, Tropical Storm Hanna has developed in the western Atlantic.
View the Hanna Tracker.
The tropical storm is centered about 260 miles northeast of the Leeward Islands with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.
Hanna is forecast to track northwest into the weekend and become a hurricane by Sunday or Monday. Fortunately, at that point, it will be located well northeast of the Bahamas. It does not appear to be of any threat to land in the near future, but Hanna will need to be closely monitored beyond this weekend and during the majority of next week.
View the projected path for Hanna.
Elsewhere in the Atlantic Basin, a tropical wave was also located a few hundred miles west of the Cape Verde Islands. It remains disorganized for now, but it may begin to organize in the next few days. It will continue to be monitored as it moves westward.
Another area of strong convection is located in the southern Bay of Campeche. This activity is too close to land for any rapid development
