Modular Home Unscathed after Isaac

After Hurricane Katrina destroyed 4,000 homes in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans with its 12 feet of surging water, the population of the area fell from 17,000 to 3,000 today. The $14.45 billion construction of new floodwalls that successfully withstood the wrath of Hurricane Isaac may encourage more people to return to the neighborhood. WKYC-TV tells MHProNews Lower 9th resident Raymond Mackey, who lost his home during Katrina, survived Isaac unscathed in his three-bedroom modular home. “Clean as a whistle,” he said of the home. “Didn’t even budge.”
