New Orleans will definitely be underwater by the end of the century. Surprised that the city wasn’t engulfed by Hurricane Katrina. Everyone needs to move away from New Orleans and make it a ghost town. Worst city 🏙 in the USA 🇺🇸

First thing wrong. The people of New Orleans that left to go to other states were evacuees not Refugees. We live in the US and are US citizens.

I mean, yeh floods are a PITA but these mofos aint doing themselves any favours.... most of the houses in flood areas seem to be a single ground floor. Would some stilts and more high rises not help a bit... although it sounds like the ones moving have probably got the right idea at this point

Sad because things progressively got worse with covid and Ida. Speaking with my family every other day just reminds me how much has changed in the two years I've been gone. Schools are closing, gentrification is taking over, and jobs aren't as plentiful. This video is hitting the mark though on its placement. If there is another hurricane caliber of Katrina, I don't see it staying on the map😓😭

Throughout this entire video I just thought: FUCKING LEAVE. Go up north and let New Orleans get taken back by Mother Nature. I just can't feel sorry for a population, city, and state, that continues to ignore what is going on and keeps thinking they can overpower and control Mother Nature.

Probably too many dams upriver that are blocking fresh sedimentation, that and the city needs to earthfill the lowest districts and then rebuild at least 5 or 10 feet above sea level.

When my grandfather passed away, I was informed he owned a large island off the LA coast... And now it's ours. "Wow, we're rich!" I naively thought. My dad broke the other news: "The land stinks and we couldn't give it away. Sorry. It's a worthless swamp." What a doozy! We inherited land that's more of a burden to own than not. The taxes we have to pay on it are more than it's worth in the open market. To this day we still own a swampy island a sq. mile in size. And it's utterly worthless.

I live near New Orleans. The city is always devastated by hurricanes, most recently Ida, so when people say Louisiana will be eroded in 50 years, i get happy sometimes. At least we won’t all have to suffer from such catastrophe.

As someone who lives in Louisiana and goes to New Orleans fairly often, I can confirm it’s a bitch. I went down there one day and it started raining, and within like 5 minutes, water was filling the roads going up to people’s car doors.

And I grew up in the New Orleans area and I love it. By the way, I have a solution. Let's build Los Angeles and San Francisco on Fault Lines. As far as population goes New Orleans has recovered and has its' Metro Population back to pre-Katrina levels of 1,250,000 and 65 miles away Baton Rouge is booming and has a Metro Population of 870,000. The Mississippi River is kept in its' banks because there are 140 refineries and Chemical Plants on its' banks between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The US Army Corps of Engineers has been spending Billions and constructed many Flood Control Structures. You also are ignorant of Hurricanes and the fact that Ida never threatened New Orleans as it came from the West side of New Orleans and not the East and actually threatened The West side of NOLA and Baton Rouge. Hurricanes are part of living in the Gulf Coast (particularly from Houston to Pensacola) and always have been. You really are full of crap. So stop the BS.

New Orleans and Phoenix are cities that will probably have to be abandoned within the next 100 years. Oh, yeah. Forgot about New York and Miami. New York will get all the money to save it, while the government abandons Miami and New Orleans.

Most inanimate objects or places are called she for some reason. Maybe because the owner or local leader is attached to the place? It's completely normal.

New Orleans is like Winnipeg, Canada. Two cities founded perfectly there's a river (for Winnipeg its 2 rivers meeting) right in the centre of the country and was thriving due to the water transport. New Orleans went from the 3rd biggest city in America to the 15th while Winnipeg went from 3rd to the 7th due to the arise of modern technology.
