Another old classmate is back from his last teaching/research gig in Europe and seeing him recently reminded me to google for the old CBS news story that featured him and the video he shot during Katrina. The footage also conveys a flavor for my own personal experience.
The question the video begs is who should have paid Charles Grey, the man whose roof we see flying down the street well in advance of the surge? His wind insurer or his flood insurer? By now we all should know which check he got first.
