Description Flooding in Venice, Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. Part of Venice, LA, on August 30, 2005. The southernmost permanently inhabited area on the Louisiana coast, Venice is located within a ring levee on the Mississippi River. The levee was ineffective during Hurricane Katrina. The entire town was flooded, oil-field vessels and barges were strewn haphazardly, and huge deposits of wrack were left on both sides of the ring levee on the west side of town.
