TV Alert. Tomorrow -- "Drowning New Orleans." Culture:
"`Drowning New Orleans,'' a National Geographic special that airs June 21 at 9 p.m. New York time, delivers more scary news: Katrina was a bit of a weak sister. A stronger storm making a direct hit might wash the French Quarter all the way to Cuba.

This hour-long program provides a concise, well-illustrated explanation of the storm's destruction of the city's anti- flooding defenses. The Maginot line readily comes to mind."
