|This house was knocked off its foundations.
Note that the spray paint indicates it was searched both 9/14/05 and again on 10/10/05.
|Here's a look in through the front door. Actually, it's a look over the front door, which was still sitting in place, albeit knocked off its hinges.|
|This was the sight from the front porch. I didn't even notice the cars (yes, plural) under the trees until Dani pointed them out.|
|Here's another house similarly knocked
off its foundation.
The graffiti from the search and rescue groups indicates "1 live dog barking" and tags the place for the SPCA to revisit.
|This is the view of the drop-off from
the front porch down to the house's resting place.
A lot of houses around New Orleans are/were built off the ground like this, ironically, to avoid flooding.
|Here's the view inside. I think they're going to need more than a wet-vac.|
|The water seemed to have flowed on in and pushed debris past the front room all the way to the back.|
|This is a look around the side of the
house to where it used to stand.
I've pointed it out elsewhere in other post-Katrina galleries, but note the corrosion on the fence from having been submerged for several weeks.
|This house was pushed up against the back fence.|
|This is a look inside through the door
on the right above.
It's hard to see in this picture, but some little porcelain statues remained in the china cabinet.
