Hurricane Katrina devastated the City of New Orleans in August, 2005. The elevation profile of the city shows us that it is a leveed bowl-like structure that sits at much lower elevation than the surround Lake Pontchartrain and Mississippi River. A total of 140 billion gallons of water accumulated in the city as of September 5, 2005, and it took months to get the city dry again. The spatial distribution of inundation is also complex, with several parts like the inner city having higher flood depth than others.
