After Gustav: Snapshots from the field

Just wanted to share two snapshots from my travels around New Orleans this week after weathering Hurricane Gustav:

This church, 'Unity Baptist' is in a part of town called "Central City" a few miles to the west of the French Quarter...

This tilting house is in Uptown New Orleans.. (the area that includes Tulane U, Loyola U, Audubon Zoo...) A neighbor told us that the owners were renovating– you can see the green paint is fresh.. and inside, the house has been gutted, and new wooden support beams have gone up... we don’t know if the owners have even been back to see it...

    Is Hurrican Gustav the worst natural disaster to ever hit a state caplital in the history of the United States?
