Is New Orleans the Next Atlantis

Category Five Hurricane Like Ivan could destroy the Big Easy

Well, the resident's of Florida must be relieved that monster hurricane Ivan is headed more West and looks likely to spare the state. But from Pensacola to New Orleans people are preparing for a storm that could be potentially bigger the devastating hurricane Andrew of 1992.

As the storm track moves steadily West, I remembered a show I saw on the Discovery channel about how a monster storm could flood New Orleans to a depth of 20 feet or more. This of course is because the Big Easy sits in a bowl like depression between Lake Pontchatrain and the Mississippi River and parts of the city are well below sea level.

Let's hope that Ivan decides to go elsewhere.
