A news story on Yahoo (www.yahoo.com) Dec 27 reports that the Port of New Orelans, La., USA, which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina on August 29 is recovering quickly: ship traffic is now about 50% of normal.  Before Hurricane Katrina struck about 36-40 ships called at the Port of New Orleans each week; currently about 18-20 ships are calling each week, a much faster recovery than predicted. Port officials are predicting that by March, 2006 traffic will be at 70% of pre Katrina levels.
