The film Hurricane on the Bayou is about the wetlands of Louisiana before and after Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane on the Bayou is both a documentary of Hurricane Katrina's effects and a call to restore Louisiana's wetlands, rebuild New Orleans, and honor the culture of the city. The film is narrated by actress Meryl Streep and driven by a jazz-, blues-, Cajun-, and gospel-fueled soundtrack featuring Tab BenoitAmanda ShawMavis Staples and Allen Toussaint. It was originally a "what-if" scenario about a major hurricane impacting New Orleans prior to Hurricane Katrina. The film debuted at the Entergy IMAX in New Orleans, La., on the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, several months before being shown elsewhere.

The wetlands act as speed bums when the storm surged so much so every foot of wetland would slows down every 3 miles of the storm from Atlantic.    Storms and hurricanes …
