But on the 29 August 2005 New Orleans took a direct hit from Hurricane Katrina

Uh, it wasn't a direct hit. Katrina blew the levees with a backhand blow from her weak side.

Dirt boy and by the way I enjoyed our conversation last night I realize your not the enemy in this. The problem was storm surge. In large part to that inter coastal canal I believe. I think in some ways it was the perfect storm. Also if some idiot had secured a barge we wouldnt have had half the flooding in Nola esp in the lake view area that resulted in the waters you saw on canal and the quarter

A direct hit is classified as the center of a storm passing within 70nm of a given point. By that standard, N.O. received a direct hit.
