51. katrina was a cat 3 at new orleans so the levees were not up to spec
the problem w. katrina overall was that the storm was too big and too strong, plenty of places were outside the levee protection

however, as far as new orleans, all these years and beers we were told we had cat 3 protection and katrina was cat 3 at new orleans -- and the levees did not hold, so we are understandably a little irate and want our money back etc.
