In Pakistan, an echo of Hurricane Katrina

When I saw the picture from Pakistan 15 minutes ago, it struck me how primitive and futile a wooden boat on a donkey cart seemed as rescue equipment in the face of the massively tragic deluge there, and how different the scene was from floods in the U.S. I second-guessed myself almost immediately, as I remembered the 2005 picture from Gulfport in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
