Total lives: 1,863? Cf. Netherlands toll in 1953 North Sea flood[edit]

This number is the number of Dutch reported to be killed in the North Sea flood in 1953: E.g., ``The biggest disaster in recent history is the flooding in February 1953. Large parts of the Southwest of The Netherlands were flooded and 1,836 people died. Dutch Report p.248: http://biotech.law.lsu.edu/climate/docs/Dutch_Perspective_on_LA.pdf

It isunlikely that both floods would have the same number in both these regions. Can you please confirm the source of that number in the New Orleans case? From what I can tell, the citations are either grey material or peer reviewed but don't state that number.

Criticism of government response[edit]

Hello. I am VERY new to Wikipedia, and while researching an unrelated topic I found this postmortem analysis of the apparent interconnected dysfunctions among government, private sector and even individuals from a person inside FEMA during the Katrina period. I do not know if it meets criteria for inclusion, and would prefer to let an experienced editor judge. https://www.bernsteincrisismanagement.com/newsletter/crisis-manager-080831.html#cmu CyndiMcIncheese (talk) 16:55, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
