(Disclaimer- I don't live in or visit Nola, but have friends who live and visit and I am very interested in the rebuilding of the city).
I read an article or saw a video of the current technology of water pumps, giant flaps that close off a surge from Lake P (similar to ones on the Thames) and a number of other flood-control works that have been built since 2005. I'd like to ask locals what they think of these, and in general how people there feel about the protections for the city and surrounding areas.
I did consider moving to Nola when I'd gotten a new credential, many years ago. Saw an ad for a job in a magazine with a picture of someone looking *up* at boats! I found this alarming. However much I love jazz and food and (back then) city life, I couldn't get behind the humidity I'd heard of and watching boats go by *UP*..
