It is August, 2005. A doomsday scenario predicted by a handful of engineers and scientists is about to play out, with geographical and man-made factors combining to produce one of the worst natural disasters in American history. This program presents a scientific analysis of the destruction of New Orleans, explaining what really happened when Hurricane Katrina hit, and why. Depicting the city's precarious infrastructure and lack of planning as a ticking time bomb, the video shows how the surrounding waters of the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain breached a series of man-made levees and brought about a modern-day deluge of nearly biblical proportions.
