I'm writing a realistic story that will end in the Boothsville-Venice, Louisiana area about twenty years in the future. It is a part of Plaquemines Parish, one of the hardest hit parishes involved in Hurricane Katrina.
It would be helpful if I could get some input on what the current situation in that area is (like the population and growth in visual terms. Are there a lot of houses being built, or are people tending to stay away in order to avoid another devastating hurricane? How are businesses there?) so that I can give a decent representation of what it might be like in the near future.
