A Horror Movie Set in New Orleans

Written, produced, and directed by the Army Corps of Engineers (wmv).

Filmed at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute:
As part of the ongoing IPET study, Rensselaer engineers were selected to build and test small-scale centrifuge models of sections of the flood-protection system from several locations in New Orleans, including the 17th Street Canal and the London Avenue Canal. They are attempting to replicate conditions during Hurricane Katrina by subjecting the models to flood loads.
Let’s hope there is no sequel.

My Alma Mater! It figures they're in cahoots with ACE. They have an endowment of $700 trillion and they keep calling me to give money. I read you most everyday. Keep on, man.
