For my home, New Orleans, it will be avoiding contact with any standing water. Don't walk in it unless you have boots. Once that water stands and mixes with sewage, chemicals, etc., it's bad news for anyone. Do not let your pets drink any standing water either. I've seen that happen. It's unavoidable since many pets get lost in storms (that's how we got a dog when I was little, we found it on our property with no tags after a hurricane). More Post Katrina posts to follow.
This could be the case in any community in America, unfortunately New Orleans has to be the one who really gets screwed.
