New favorite photo from the aftermath

This barge is sitting in the lower 9th ward, you can see the water rushing over the levee into the neighborhood. The place where it changes from turbulent to placid is the levee which has breached, destroying this neighborhood. It's amazing to see, and something that no picture can accurately convey.

Given the location of the houses and the direction of the turbulence, it appears to me that the water is actually rushing back out of the neighborhood... No?
In the words of the great Billy Joel,

"you may be wrong, for all I know, you may be right."

I'm inclined to think that you are.
