- This week in Louisiana history. August 29, 1962. Heaviest rainfall in 24 hour period, 22 inches at Sabine Wildlife Refuge
- This week in New Orleans history. August 29,
2005. Katrina breached the levees. The city and
metropolitan area were underwater in the aftermath of the
hurricane. This date should never pass without a pause
to honor the memory of all who were lost that day. And
to remember or try not to remember all else that was
lost. Near the bottom of this page is a time-line
of the events which occurred on August 29, 2005. If you
choose not to "go there" (literally or figuratively) stop
reading when you reach the bottom section.
