Different Flood Results

The lamestream media told you:

Dramatic images of homes flooded to their rooftops attest to the stunning extent of devastation caused by Mississippi River flooding in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri and elsewhere. Footage of local citizens aiding each other, filling sandbags, reinforcing levees, and calmly dealing with the disaster are a positive sign of the American spirit at work. The flooding is at least as bad and may be worse than the nation experienced during the Katrina episode in Louisiana.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Ray Nagin, Mayor of New Orleans, could not be reached for an opinion on why his self-proclaimed "Chocolate City" suffered endless looting and lawlessness after an epic flooding disaster, while entire states on the Mississippi River have only experienced cooperative efforts to ameliorate the disaster. It's not clear whether FEMA, highly visible in the New Orleans event but remarkably low profile in the current flooding, played a role in the different outcomes. It could have been the wind, which the Gulf Coast endured, while the current flood states only have countless square miles of inundation and billions in property and industry damage.
