There is a very interesting pictorial slide show, made up of 10 pictures with detailed captions, about the sinking cemeteries of coastal Louisiana, It seems that eleven cemeteries in Jefferson Parish have repeatedly flooded since Hurricane Katrina, and in Lafourche, Terrebonne and Plaquemines parishes, more than a dozen burial sites have succumbed to tidal surges.
