Self-reflexive hurricane history

I'm anxiously watching cars crawl out of New Orleans....dear God, can Katrina happen there again? I hope that the state of Louisiana is simply taking no chances; what I've heard about preparations at both the state and city level is reassuring. But the thought that all the work that Mississippi and New Orleans have done to come back from Katrina could be wiped out in a matter of twenty four hours--it's just too cruel.

I haven't seen much of what Gustav did to Cuba. I hope the damage wasn't too terrible. (And then there's the devastating flooding in India.)
