    Your city is below sea level right next to the ocean. You are right in the strike zone of hurricane alley. You were all told to evacuate. Why do you fight it? Water always wins. I used to feel sorry for them, but I really don't anymore. You need to move inland a few miles.

    It's much more fun to loot by boat.

    You might mention to San Francisco to move as well, since they are near a fault line, or cities in the Midwest, since tornados occur in that area, or NYC and Washington, since terrorists make those cities targets.

    New Orleans is 125 miles from the Gulf. It's there because it's the port city for the Mississippi River. Florida has been hit by twice as many hurricanes as Louisiana, North Carolina has been hit as many times as Louisiana.

    But don't let facts get in the way. :rolleye2:

    Here's an inconvenient fact; New Orleans is only 8 miles away from the ocean. Also, none of those places you mention are BELOW SEA LEVEL genius, which was the point of the OP.

    So, pack your smarmy smiley away and go get my shine box.

    Might want to look at a map "genius". And yes plenty of parts of Florida are below sea level, so is Houston "genius".

    NOLA is below sea level. Don't care that it's a port city, or that other states get more hurricanes. Water always wins. I don't know who the bigger dumbass is: Them, for continually moving back, or us, for bailiong their ass out every time.

    List of US cities and places below sea level. Notice none from Fla or Houston - genius.
    Death Valley

    Salton Sink, USA [−66 m (−217 ft)]

    New Orleans, Louisiana, USA [−2 m (−7 ft)]
    Laguna Salada, Mexico [−10 m (−33 ft)]
    Lago Enriquillo, Dominican Republic [−46 m (−151 ft)]

    It's the infill stuff in NO that's the problem. The old Crescent City portions, including the French Quarter, don't flood like the 9th Ward. The 9th Ward gets catastrophically flooded about every time a hurricane comes rambling through and that goes back over 100 years.

    Put the 9th Ward houses on floats, I say.

    What kind of idiot thinks that New Orleans is 125 miles from the Gulf of Mexico? Clearly someone who has never been to New Orleans.

    I don't know why they all buy trailer homes, Houseboats are the answer.

    Trailers are cheaper. There's a good deal of poverty in that region despite all the natural resources. Honestly, the robber barons haven't shared the wealth and have caused a lot of problems with their dredging of the gulf plus the runoff from every fucking industry from Minnesota on down impacts the region.

    It's a whole thing.

    But myself? I wouldn't get a houseboat. I'd get a cabin cruiser. Those things can weather some wicked stuff.
