Letters: Levee Failures, Not Katrina Flooded New Orleans

Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to the article “Lox Census Committee Sets Goal to Count All Residents in 2020” published Sept. 20.

Ron Bukley wrote this in his story: “[Mayor Robert] Shorr said he learned at a recent Palm Beach County League of Cities meeting that New Orleans is still suffering due to a gross census undercount in 2010, after Hurricane Katrina flooded the city in 2005.” New Orleans was flooded due to the federal levee failures.
