61% in St. Bernard won't rebuild

The Picayune buried the lede in a good-news article about progress on Road Home. The truth is, most won't rebuild in Plaquemines and St. Bernard.

Road Home goal may be in sight:
"But That's not the case in Plaquemines and St. Bernard parishes, which suffered massive damage and are generally more at risk from storm surge than the rest of the region. In Plaquemines, 43 percent of applicants say they plan to rebuild, while in St. Bernard, 39 percent plan to rebuild. In Jefferson Parish, where homes tended to sustain relatively light damage, 85 percent of Road Home applicants said they intend to rebuild."

I wonder what the rebuilding numbers would look like if Cat 5 levees were constructed, not just promised.
