Which deluge? After Katrina scenes were often scored with the song "Six Feet of Water in The Streets of Evangeline". Nor was the flood in that song anything like the first.
Or is this about the coming floods predicted by Ivor van Heerden, if the coastal wetlands and the barrier islands are not restored?

This is about New Orleans after Katrina.

I can recommend van Heerden's book as well, then. Though he gets a little technical sometimes, he makes it very clear what happened: and why building higher levees is pretty nearly precisely useless if other measures aren't taken well downstream.
