From the air New Orleans is almost unrecognisable.Clear green fields have replaced washed up homes, flooded streets and the mass carnage that ravaged the city three years ago. When Hurricane Katrina struck on 29th August 2005, it would prove to be the sixth strongest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded. After the initial destruction the resulting water surge left 80% of New Orleans flooded, and devastated the small communities dotted along the surrounding coastline. More than 1,800 were killed.
