lessons learned

As I peered down through my lens at the storage tanks full of oil and other toxic chemicals, I had a flash back to Hurricane Katrina and the Murphy Oil refinery storage tank in Meraux, Louisiana that flooded and leaked approximately 1 million gallons of oil throughout adjacent neighborhoods and canals. I had little hope and confidence that the various refineries in south Louisiana had really learned their lessons from Katrina and could only hope for the sake of our environment and communities that Isaac would weaken or shift course. That didn’t happen.
