    The scale of this is just mind boggling, must be half a million displaced people.

    Will be quite a feat to plug the leak before it stabalizes at sea level.
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    You can try and be prepared to take a hit from a storm, but no one is prepared for the prolonged aftermath.

    Now they are considering filling cargo containers with sand to stop the breach.

    They should take the thousands of destroyed cars and use them to plug it, then cover them with dirt.
