I think that Larry Smith should have made the distinction that what happened in the 9th ward ,while tragic and unfortunate to say the least, was not officially a natural disaster but the result of the colossal failure of an inadequate civil engineering infrastructure after it was stressed to the max by the storm surge and the shamefully inadequate response by FEMA to the chaos and emergencies that ensued.
