Christ you can't watch a single TV station without someone waxing on about how it's one year to the day that Katrina gave New Orleans a wash! Sorry if this seems a bit hard nosed but, if you build your house below sea level in an area prone to hurricanes, then you should expect to get your house flooded every once in a while. As an act of gross stupidity I believe it deserves a Darwin award. It was bad enough a year ago having to listen to countless news reports with people blubbing the hearts out and pointing to the nice new Lake Orleans say "oooooh poor me, my house used to be there". Now we have to listen to the fact that a year ago some pillock had his house turned into a lake! Get a grip people!
