NEW ORLEANS – Levees.org announced plans to convert a flooded home ravaged by Hurricane Katrina into an history exhibit.

         Today, Monday, August 8, 2016, at 4918 Warrington Dr., in Gentilly, at 10:00 a.m., New Orleans City Councilman Jared Brossett (District D) and reps with Levees.org announced that pending approval from the City of New Orleans, Levees.org intends to preserve a house which flooded to the rafters when the London Avenue Canal burst at 50% of design load during Hurricane Katrina.

         “The house will become an authentic museum just a stone’s throw from a levee breach site,” Sandy Rosenthal, founder of Levees.org, said. “Everyone, especially the survivors of the flood, deserve this flooding artifact.”

         The application for a permit, Docket 80/16, is scheduled 3rd on the City Planning Commission's agenda on Tuesday, August 9, at 1:30 p.m., in Council Chambers.
