More than half say abandon flooded parts of New Orleans
WASHINGTON (AP) — Flood-prone neighborhoods of New Orleans should be abandoned and rebuilt on higher ground, according to more than half of the participants in an AP-Ipsos poll.
Taken in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the survey found 54 percent favor relocating vast sections of the city that tourists love for its jazz, distinctive cuisine and Mardi Gras.
Although about 80 percent of New Orleans was underwater, large sections of the historic French Quarter and Garden District were spared major flooding. The city, home to about 484,000 people, sits 6 feet below sea level on average.
The aid price tag already runs tens of billions of dollars. In the days since the hurricane, House Speaker Dennis Hasten, R-Ill., has questioned whether the worst-flooded areas should be rebuilt.
“There’s a lot of history, but the fact remains that it remains below sea level,” said Kate Rehfus, a Republican from Fort Thomas, Ky., who loves New Orleans for its blues, beignets and Cafe Du Monde coffee. “It wouldn’t be the same by any means, but if it could be done, that would be best. This would never happen again.”
Early reports of the survey results
prompted angry phone calls from displaced residents of New Orleans. Among them was a tearful Mary Dawn Pugh.
“My first reaction is, where? Where would you move it? There’s water everywhere," said the recent law school graduate, whose New Orleans home is submerged.
Pugh complained about public reaction to recent TV coverage of the worst moments of a city known worldwide for its romance and charm.
“I’ve heard so much hatred spewed about New Orleans, people talking about what they’ve seen," said Pugh, who wondered which people were polled. “It could be backwoods Minnesota people thinking how their tax dollars are going to be spent."
Mike Kimble, who lives in the suburbs of New Orleans, said asking whether New Orleans should be rebuilt is ridiculous. “When there’s an earthquake in San Francisco, when there’s a riot in LA, when there’s mudslides out West, we still build houses on the side of the mountains with federal money,” Kimble said. “If there’s a Southern city in a Southern state that has a problem, then the question is, why rebuild it?
“New Orleans is a vital place to the country—the ports, the grain elevators, the oil refineries,” he said. “Such a question like that should never be asked."
Just over half, 52 percent, said they disapprove of President Bush’s handling of hurricane relief. Blacks were especially upset with Bush; 78 percent of blacks blamed the president for the poor response, compared with 49 percent of whites.
TWo-thirds in the poll said state and local governments deserve much of the blame for the response.
Members of the New Orleans Qty Council are vowing to rebuild the city—a task that would cost billions of dollars. The Big Easy is a magnet for tourists, with more than IO million visiting in 2004 and spending almost $5 billion, according to the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau.
More than four in IO of those polled said they want the city rebuilt where it is, with its levees strengthened.
Residents of Louisiana, Mississippi, the coastal area of Alabama and the Honda Panhandle were not interviewed for the poll because of widespread damage to the communications systems in the states and the ongoing efforts by residents to recover from the storm.
In first sweep, authorities find far fewer bodies than feared
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Alarming predictions of as many as 10,000 dead in New Orleans may have been greatly exaggerated, with authorities saying Friday that the first street-by-street sweep of the swamped city revealed far fewer corpses than feared.
“Some of the catastrophic deaths that some people predicted may not have occurred," said Col. Terry Ebbert, the city's homeland security chief.
He declined to give a revised estimate. But he added: “Numbers so far are relatively minor as compared to the dire projections of 10,000.”
The encouraging news came as workers repairing New Orleans’ system of levees and water pumps projected Friday that it will take a month to dry out the city ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. Authorities officially shifted
most of their attention to counting and removing the dead after spending days cajoling, persuading and all but strong-arming the living into leaving the city because of the danger of fires and disease from the fetid floodwater^
Ever since the hurricane struck Aug. 29, residents, rescuers and cadaver-sniffing dogs have found bodies floating in the waters, trapped in attics or deft lying on broken . highways. Some were dropped off at hospital doorsteps or left slumped in wheelchairs out in the open.
Mayor Ray Nagin suggested last weekend that “it wouldn’t be unreasonable to have 10,000” dead, and authorities ordered 25,000 body bags. But soldiers who had been brought in over the past few days to help in the search were not seeing that kind of toll.This devotional page and directory is made POSSIBLE BY THESE BUSINESSES WHO ENCOURAGE ALL OF US TO ATTEND WORSHIP SERVICES.
