Harold Leggett, who heads the state Department of Environmental Quality, says Gustav's damage to homes was caused mostly by wind, while much of Katrina's destruction was wrought by flooding.
He says DEQ isn't facing the post-Katrina problem of handling a colossal load of ruined appliances and hazardous household waste.He says most of that debris will be trees, branches, leaves and other vegetation.
Leggett says the Army Corps of Engineers estimates that Gustav produced 12 million to 15 million cubic yards of debris in the state, compared with 26 million generated by Katrina and Rita.•
