Where is this New Orleans flag flying? Obviously someone wanted to fly the colors and show their support for the city and the rebuilding. Maybe someone who escaped the flooding?
The flag flies directly across the street from the famous breach in the 17th Street Canal that flooded so much of the city. There wasn't much left that salvageable in this area as billion of tons of water cascaded down on the neighborhood smashing house after house.
Amazing to me.
Below is the newly replaced wall. It has been redesigned with new features and a flood gate to protect it from too much water in the canal. The new version provides vastly better protection than before.
