#1 the post Katrina reconstructed levy system worked better than expected back in august 2012 during the hit from Hurricane Isaac

that storm passed almost directly over New Orleans and the storm surge was 10' there

however, that August the Mississippi river was much lower than it is currently

#2 Whoops! Moderator error (not me, for a change). Hopefully Skidmark will soon see and replace his article.

Skidmark, was it this?

Interesting how the Brits are better informed about US than we are.

#4 Mississippi River has been held at a steady 16.3 feet (give or take a few inches) for several months by diversion of a bunch of flow through the control structures into Lake Pontchartrain and into the Atchafalaya River system. This storm system should not raise it too much from the rain, as the River will only see the water that falls on it or gets pumped out of the city into it, which is only a tiny fraction of flow. Storm surge at the mouth of the river will reduce the gradient ('raise the back pressure') temporarily, which will reuce the river flow and back the river up into New Orleans, which would probably raise the river level to near record highs, and be a full test of the levee system.

#9 This is indeed the article that lost its title and link for a while, Bright Pebbles. These things happen on occasion.
