Bob Bea, a civil engineer with the University of California at Berkeley has spent 10,000 hours , at his own expense, studying the levee failures during Katrina in New Orleans. 

He has determined that "MARGO" or the "Mister Go" shipping channel dug in the 1960's , served as a "hurricane highway" for Katrina storm surge. 

A disaster that it turns out was man-made or hand made!
