Plaquemines left out of levee plans. :
"The government's announcement has sent shock waves through the communities of fishermen, orange growers, sulfur miners and oil field workers. The fear is that if the government decides not to spend about $1.6 billion to strengthen and heighten the levees down here, it may be impossible for folks to get flood insurance."

It's a tough call. $1.6 billion for about 14,000 people.
