From Greg Palast, Investigative Reporter:
In July 2005, Van Heerden told Channel 4 television of Britain that, “In a month, this city could be underwater.” In one month, it was. Van Heerden had sounded the alarm for at least two years, even speaking to George Bush’s White House about an emergency condition: with the Gulf closing in, the levees were 18 inches short. But the Army Corps of Engineers was busy with other rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates.

Meanwhile, a review in November 11, 2005 of Science Magazine, suggested that rather than simply not built to withstand a storm of Katrina’s ferocity, engineers said poor design or construction of the levees bears much of the blame.
In Chapters 5 and 6 of the the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible, Moses details the genealogy of Adam through Seth and allows us to calculate the chronology of the antedeluvian generations:
Years from Creation of Man (DOB)
||Day 6 of Creation
|Adam had Seth (3rd-born male but promised in place of Abel) when he was 130 years old.
||0 + 130
|Seth had Enos when he was 105 (and Adam was 235).
||130 + 105
|Enos had Cainan when he was 90 (and Adam was 325).
||235 + 90
|Cainan had Mahaleel when he was 70 (and Adam was 395).
||325 + 70
|Mahaleel had Jared when he was 65 (and Adam was 460).
||395 + 65
|Jared had Enoch when he was 162 (and Adam was 622).
||460 + 162
|Enoch had Methuselah when he was 65 (and Adam was 687).
||622 + 65
|Methuselah had Lamech when he was 187 (and Adam was 874).
||687 + 187
|Adam lived to 930 years old.
||0 + 930
|Lamech had Noah when he was 182.
||874 + 182
|The Great Flood occurred when Noah was 600 years old [Gen 7:6]
||1056 + 600
1656 years had passed from the Creation of Adam until the Great Flood.
