NO wasn't below seal level when it was founded. The reason i't so
vulnerable now is that the coastal wetlands that protect the mainland have
been greatly destroyed by the oil industry.

So, did destroying the wetlands make the sea level go up, or did
it make the other land go down ?????
Pumping caused a sinking, and wetland dist ruction allows the storms
to directly impact the city. The channeling of the Mississippi also
was big and There are probably other factors, ineptitude and greed
included. If men are involved a disaster is sure to follow.........
