17th Street Canal Federal Levee Failure after Katrina 2005

This picture shows the federal levee failure of the 17th Street Canal. It was truly hell on earth as you can see. The jagged pilings in the background were put in place by the Army Corps of Engineers to stop the water until the pumps were put in place. The pilings have been since been removed.
