Draft Environmental Assessment DPW Field Offices at Genois City of New Orleans FEMA-1603-DR-LA New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana August 2015

Hurricane Katrina made landfall on 29 August 2005, near the town of Buras, Louisiana, with sustained winds of more than 125 miles per hour. The accompanying storm surge damaged levees and entered the city of New Orleans from various coastal waterways, resulting in flooding throughout much of the city. The storm’s high winds, heavy rains, and flooding caused considerable damage to the site of the City of New Orleans’ Department of Public Works Field Offices complex.
