I was just thinking about the fact that the Atlantic hurricane season is just hitting its stride
, it doesn't end until November 30th. Most of the worst US hurricanes have come in September
and according to forecasts this season is expected to be particularly violent
. It is entirely possible that another hurricane could hit the Gulf coast region and make reconstruction efforts impossible along with wreaking additional havoc.
If you think things are bad in those places now, imagine if another hurricane hits while we are still trying to do the basic reconstruction efforts (like reinforcing the levees around New Orleans). Scary thoughts...
