the story...
Hurricane Katrina approaches the Gulf coast in September of 2005 in this NASA satellite photo at top.

The second NASA photo shows two views of New Orleans, LA. The top view was taken in 2000 while the bottom photo shows New Orleans seventeen days after Hurricane Katrina flooded the city. Much of the city is still under water.
