They Have Hurricanes Here?

Texas awaits Rita catastrophe, New Orleans floods - Yahoo! News:

"In Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dan Hitchings of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said: 'The waters in the industrial canal had risen very rapidly ... far above what was ever predicted or anticipated in the area.'

He said workers had patched the levee with sandbags, crushed stone and compacted soil.

'Looking back, we should have put another foot on it,' he said. 'Looking back, you say, gosh, I wish we had done a little more.'"

Emphasis mine!
