September 6, 2005—Homes in New Orleans remain surrounded by floodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin told reporters today, "There is still a significant amount of water, but instead of having 80 percent of the city underwater, our estimation is we have 60 percent of the city underwater."

Today President Bush said he would review the government's response to Hurricane Katrina, but he refused to say whether he would fire any aides involved. "What I intend to do is to lead an investigation to find out what went right and what went wrong," he said after a cabinet meeting. He also noted that the response to Katrina boded ill for any response to a terrorist attack in the future.
