^^^ Katrina was of natural causes. This dude saw a leak in the dam and didn't do anything about it. Did you even watch the video or did you just follow your friends sporty and Possum's lead? Watch it with the volume down and enjoy the history or don't There is subtitles for you to do so.

The flooding of New Orleans was caused by poorly constructed levees. The hurricane itself is a natural occurring thing but the catastrophy could been avoided if the levees would have been made with a 1000 year guarantee not a 30 year one. (Comparing Netherlands vs Nola's)

So basically it was not the hurricane but the poor construction that killed people

Point proven but, this dude saw a leak and basically said I am going home for the night instead of doing what he could to stop this catastrophe. Maybe this guys great great grandson built the levees, I don't know

Here you go, Hogmaster

Mulholland took full responsibility for what has been called the worst U.S. civil engineering disaster of the 20th century and resigned at the end of 1929.[25] During the Los Angeles Coroner's Inquest he said, "the only people I envy in this whole thing are the dead" and toward the end of the Inquest went on to say, "Don't blame anyone else, you just fasten it on me. If there was an error in human judgment, I was the human, and I won't try to fasten it on anyone else." Though the inquest placed responsibility for the disaster on improper engineering and governmental inspection, it recommended that Mulholland not be held criminally responsible because he had no way of knowing that the dam's site contained unstable rock formations, which were ultimately determined to be the cause of failure.[26] Nevertheless, his critics pointed out that two other dams which Mulholland had consulted on had collapsed, and a third one was abandoned before completion.[27][28]
