I may be missing something here, but I doubt it:
YEARS OF RESEARCH SWEPT AWAY BY KATRINA'S RISING WATERS
As rising floodwaters swamped New Orleans, Louisiana's chief epidemiologist enlisted state police on a mission to break into a high-security government lab and destroy any dangerous germs before they could escape or fall into the wrong hands.
"This is what had to be done," said Ratard, who matter-of-factly put a sudden end to his lab's work.
It looks like a sad tale of loss and noble sacrifice. But isn't it a tad on the barmy side to keep stuff like this (dangerous germs.. bless) in an area that's prone to natural... excesses? If they have to do it, perhaps down a mine, and preferably one unlikely to get waterlogged.
'Fall into the wrong hands'... what about floating out into the street!?
