This is a graphic view of the timeline of the flooding of New Orleans caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It demonstrates the inevitablility of flooding caused intially by the pile-up of water in the “funnel” to the east of the city, followed by the “filling” of Lake Pontchartrain with sea water which then needed to flow back to the sea via the city of New Orleans.
