Sketch Map showing Katrina deaths in New Orleans and adjacent parishes (red dots) and principal canal levees/floodwalls which were breached. Red dots for deaths come from The Times Picayune. Dark Blue arrows show levee/flood wall breaches from the above reference and also this one. I used a several references to locate the county boundaries, principal roads and the canals.
