Wednesday, August 26, 2015 historical marker commemorates flooding of Lower 9th Ward ~Cain Burdeau, Fort Wayne Journal
~Sandy Rosenthal, president of, said her group wants to make sure Katrina is properly remembered. The group has long pushed to, as members have put it, "bust the myths of the flooding during Katrina." The group has sought to expose the engineering failures by the Army Corps of Engineers that led to the flooding of more than 80 percent of New Orleans.
Rosenthal said the new plaque is "both a commemoration of a pivotal moment in history and a memorial to those lost. For the past 10 years there's been nothing at the breach site to teach visitors," she said. "It's a plaque that will last more than 100 years."
