Supporters like you asked that we coordinate efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and we heard you loud and clear.
On August 29, 2005 there were over 50 failures of the levees and flood walls protecting New Orleans, Louisiana, and its suburbs following passage of Hurricane Katrina and landfall in Mississippi. The levee and flood wall failures caused flooding in 80% of New Orleans and all of St. Bernard Parish.
On this day – the twelve year anniversary, levees protecting many parts of southeast Texas following the passage of Hurricane Harvey failed.
See what we are doing to make sure we don’t repeat the mistakes of 2005.
