This study, written in November 2004, entitled, "What if Hurricane Ivan Had Not Missed New Orleans?", describes almost perfectly the current flood situation in New Orleans. It goes on to say:

"In this hypothetical storm scenario, it is estimated that it would take nine weeks to pump the water out of the city, and only then could assessments begin to determine what buildings were habitable or salvageable. Sewer, water, and the extensive forced drainage pumping systems would be damaged. National authorities would be scrambling to build tent cities to house the hundreds of thousands of refugees unable to return to their homes and without other relocation options."

I got this info from this thread on Slashdot.

It has been no secret for decades what would happen in NO if the levies failed.
