The importance of Americas Levees

Sandy Rosenthal founded the non-profit in 2005. The group’s focus is educating the public that the flooding of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina was due to federal engineering mistakes, not the wrath of nature.


Her upcoming book, Words Whispered in Water, is about how––against all odds––she changed the national narrative about the flooding disaster. Mango Publishing, based in Miami, will be releasing it in August of 2020.


In March of 2019, Rosenthal unveiled the Flooded House Museum at a major breach site. She initiated the installation of three historic plaques vetted by the state’s preservation office, hosts an annual levee breach bike tour, and much more.
