Old Metairie
This section of "Old Metairie," just east of the Metairie Country Club, flooded as a result of the 17th Street Canal breach in New Orleans. The canal is shown along the right hand side of the photograph. Flood waters rose at least 6 feet in this, one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in the entire metropolitan area.
