Here are some of the pics that I took while I was in the Lakeview area where the 17th Street Canal broke. He said that there was 9+ feet of water that rushed into the area within 30 minutes. The destruction is unbelievable, the smell is un bearable, and the heat magnifies everything 10 fold.

The furniture has been moved.

Insulation, mud, carpet, woodflooring and who knows what else on the floor.

300+lb. water softner has been moved.

THe backyard, notice all the vegitation is dead.

Table pedestal that has been disolved by the water.

OMG!!!


Those pictures do more to show what happened than the news do.You see a brief shot of a home that was destroyed,but seeing that is unreal.I would wear a mask or something before I went back into a place like that.That has to be Bio-Hazard in there with all the sewage.Can not be healthy.
I saw a report a few days back,and the CDC was saying that the PPM for contaminents were off the scale.They did not have a way to measure how high they actually were in there.Be careful.

I have no idea if the Pontiac run, we haven't tried it. I am a bit hesitant to turn the key for 2 reasons: 1, I would hate to do more damage to an engine that I could possible use, and 2, I REALLY don't want to get into that car to turn the key. It is still wet.

If that car was under water,that engine is toast.Guarantee when you break it open,EVERY cylinder will be rusted.Have you popped a head off a car with a blown head gasket? Noticed the little amount of coolant in the bore has usually already started to allow surface rust to form.Magify that by thousands of times and that is what you will have with that car.Let the insurance handle it.EVERY car there that was under water is nothing more than boat anchors now.
