7:22 am
stories that other channels simply weren't covering here on rewind we revisit some of the best of them to find out how the story has moved on in the years since today we rewind into 2009 into the wetlands of the mississippi delta on the gulf of mexico in 2005 the u.s. state of louisiana was devastated by hurricane katrina a category 5 storm which breached levees and flood the city of new orleans and in july 2019 tropical storm barry again forced thousands to evacuate as heavy rainfall brought widespread flooding. but hearkens aren't the only problem the easy annas facing it's been losing land to the gulf of mexico at an alarming rate caused in part by all the exploration a made worse by rising sea levels from climate change all of which has threaten the unique and ancient way of life on the bayous as those communities now face the

prospect of having to relocate to higher ground as their land and hones a loss to the rising waters from 2009 he is losing louisiana. what was once a thriving community. only water with lettering above downtown louisville right on the southern tip of louisiana it lies submerged 30 feet below us and what happened here could be what lies and still for the whole of this region as line continues to be claimed by the sea. this is by to freeze part of the delta system of the mighty mississippi one of the great rivers of the world and an american icon. for the fight along highway one towards the gulf of mexico and you'll find what's left of leave the above water level. get to the remnants of the french speaking cajun communities the 1st arrived here in the 18th century evicted by the british from
7:24 am
canada. has cajuns take on these fost what it's finding freedom and independence in this hodge podge hugely subtle terrain the marshes became and remain home to their descendants today. in one line 70 information online 5 generations in the course of a recent windle curio is the general manager of the south of the food levee district the 1st generation and learn english for french his family's journey through the generations reflects the cajun experience in southern louisiana a fragile existence in a delicate environment these waters are the lifeblood we're here because of the water we're here because the water it feeds us about it is also the nemesis for generations of people resent and have been retreating and we're going to keep on retraining until we have to the point of stability. the problem today is that
7:25 am
nobody really knows where that vanishing point lies. it's only with the goods i feel that you get a real sense of the scale of the loss. aeration . glad. you got a pretty. at one time these waters were completely planted in green and natural defense against school insurgents through the is the channels with the commercial navigation and oil pipeline with that more and more salt water began flowing into the wetlands poisoning the entire ecosystem of the natural marshlands. results. well for decades the land has been sinking recently the rate has fluctuated between 30 to 50 square kilometers a year today that totals almost 7000 square kilometers an area larger than some
7:26 am
us states has disappeared. and now experts are predicting that as global warming brings stronger and more violent hearkens and rising sea levels the rate of land loss will only accelerate. in the past the mississippi used to deposit millions of tons of sediment into the boats but. that no longer levees built to protect against cyclical flooding instead channel all the sediment out to sea starving the muslims in a. way displaced. for the mississippi river the water the settlements. and no we don't we didn't allow that flooding anymore so yeah this expanse of delta that basically it's north was cut off much like a heart attack when i went out vessel gets clogged and you can't get the new entrants into different parts of the heart muscle. windell takes us to
7:27 am
a small title gauge on the eastern end of highway one the system measures the speed at which the waters of the gulf of mexico consume the surrounding land. the monthly increase is a microscopic narrow than a single strand of hair but climate scientists believe they indicate something died the more we wait the more places it'll be too late the fact that the lot is 10 years is going to be too late for a lot of areas is not only moving through to it's rules of the past it could be that right here one of the 1st major stories in the age of global warming is being written the obituary for southeast louisiana once flourishing as you can cite person trees like these quickly die as salt water intrudes those trees drowned seen as nature's tombstone. then leave and in other towns along the bayou even the dead on spanned a poignant reminder of
7:28 am
a community that has disappeared and. for those who remain the rapid change and sense of loss runs deep down that's evolved right you have the farm land that rides judgment day and it rushes and that blood donation. that plantation all those of goma. captain bobby brown has been running the legal dock for 4 decades in front of him now is only water the people who lived here distant memories that trapped and they wanted to live in. the shrimp and it cost. that this machine push water. now salt water. is a shame. it's a shame to lose. one shot many people that don't want to raise their head age you know as the fresh water turns to salt water ecological changes swiftly
7:29 am
falling. and with that a profound impact on the lives and livelihoods of the cajuns especially for those in the shrimping and. us who are over the food base of every species between here and the gulf it all starts in the marshes so once we lose our marshes the food basically roads and everything else just just goes to. louisiana shrimp need the fresh water marshes to mature before heading out into the gulf now they're running out of room as a consequence the fishing season is increasingly shortened. coupled with an influx of cheap foreign bred shrimp saturates in the u.s. markets and local fisherman have nowhere to turn that's one thing about the numbers now they their resilience bunch and they work hard and they just have to work harder for less money. like i say it's just been tougher and tougher the economics
7:30 am
you know are getting worse and you know it seems like every year for these guys and kids it's a struggle. add to that more than $300000000.00 in damage caused to the local industry by the last 2 hurricanes alone and needs fishing between towns of years gone by have all but gone by. their father for. food at 2 pm every day of what they call the cajun dollar alongside highway one a group of old friends gather. there are right by god yeah they still speak the pats were offering their ancestors it stuck. but goal of the day is lost as of the value instead they collect cans for a few extra dollars to fix bugs that changed a lot of its life to. grow shows more than a mole on the tile we are. left ever ok.

7:32 am
marshes disappear. i can tell you about on them have a king on his bed. or drool coming through and the train reading this. i think is comin ma hard drive about 300 feet away until andrew. went in the middle of the room right now. here the biloxi chichi mucha and native american tribes have lived for centuries but the chief is reluctantly conceding that the moment has come to make a change we're now in the last 7 years the last 7 percent of our people there so i mean so we don't know how much of all of this is going to be here there is one levy plan to salvage some of the communities along the southern coast but it may come at the expense of others like chief not queens people we want to move as a community because of our heritage the history we have here on niland and to try
