    Yes but in a lot of cases that is financially impossible. Hard to sell a house that keeps getting flooded. Bad plan to put New Orleans where it is from the get go, even back then people were warned that the land was sinking.

    Sooner or later "reality" sets in and thus the saying "cut the loses"....irregardless of "what ya think it ia worth" and the reality of the market....no need to "go down with a sinking ship".....and most in NO are renters, not property owners....looking for hand-outs to remain right where they are....the modern era should have learned from Katrina, but the was a large waste of tax dollars to attempt to rebuild and shore up aging levee system....they still have problems.....:barnie.....it is just ridiculous....imho....:)

    I agree with that, now we just need to spend that money building rental units away from the flood areas so the renters have somewhere to go.
