Hurricane Katrina victims in New Orleans may be getting a new flood, but this time in dollars and cents.
According to a CNN report, a federal judge ruled in favor of the plaintiffs stating that “the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ failure to maintain a shipping channel led to catastrophic flooding during Hurricane Katrina.”
Ray Nagin, who is and was mayor during the hurricane, is looking forward to this ruling making a huge difference in the lives of the former residents of the 9th ward.
He said he looks forward to it opening the “floodgates” to more money from the federal government into the pockets of those who lost everything.
