No Way Around It
Raising our levees several feet higher than what they were before will help lower the possibility that the water would top and overflow into the living areas. Changing the materials used to build these embankments would also make these barriers stronger by using materials that don't collapse under pressure as easily.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Houses should also be build on stilts, or higher than they were originally. This allows for the house to not flood through immediately and provides a more efficient storage space for closely built neighborhoods.
