CORRECTION
 
In a story on the recovery effort in New Orleans, we reported that FEMA had advised residents to rebuild their houses at a level above the level of the flooding caused by Hurricane Katrina. In fact, the agency advised residents to save money by building below the level of the flooding. We regret any confusion caused by our mistake.
