New Orleans...

Hurricane Katrina caused extensive and severe damage over the southeastern United States, including Louisiana's largest city, New Orleans, on August 29, 2005.
From the news on TV, many people are shocked to see the the scenes of death and despair coming from a major city in the world's richest economy.

..."But where is New Orleans? Is bigger than Taiwan?", asked by my sister after she realized that Hurricane Katrina had caused the mayor to call for a total evacuation...

ur... I know that New Orleans is the biggest city of Louisiana state, and I'm also sure that Taiwan is bigger than New Orleans. But where is the exact geographic location?

Let's check the stats on website!

According to the Wikipedia, New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana along the Mississippi River.

New Orleans has a total area of 907km2, and Louisiana state is 134,382 km2. Taiwan is about 36,000km2...

So, Although Taiwan is small, we are still bigger thenNew orleans city....^_^;
