Superdome

Superdome survival:  The roof of the Superdome in New Orleans was badly damaged during hurricane Katrina. American football's New Orleans Saints could be marching out of the storm-damaged Superdome and moving next week's workouts for their season opener to Texas because of the damage. Two holes were punched in the roof of the 80,000-seat domed stadium Monday as about 10,000 people took refuge inside, trying to escape the hurricane's fury. (James Neilsen/AFP/Getty Images)

Very good pictures, a nice mixture.

Still very sad to look at those pictures, glad to see the rebuilding is on the way.
