Hurricane Katrina, Take 2

Ok, so if this hurricane buries New Orleans [ie, the bowl of water effect comes into play, and even if the core of engineers is able to drain it in 6 months, it will never be the same city again] and wrecks untold destruction along the coastline, will there be other effects? Will people move away from the coast? Move to the west coast? Move to places like Galveston with some historic meaning, and on the coast, but slightly less vulnerable to a class 5 hurricane?

Will the media stop treating every tropical storm like the end of the world?

Will this be taken as a sign of impending doom, either by Greens on the left or by people believing in a coming rapture on the right?
