NEW ORLEANS — Hurricane Katrina's victims have put a price tag on their suffering and it is staggering — including one plaintiff seeking the unlikely sum of $3 quadrillion.

The total number — $3,014,170,389,176,410 — is the dollar figure so far sought from some 489,000 claims filed against the federal government over damage from the failure of levees and flood walls following the Aug. 29, 2005, hurricane.

Of the total number of claims, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it has received 247 for at least $1 billion apiece, including the one for $3 quadrillion.

Wow, I got me some extra-curricular facts to bring to my Geography class tomorrow. We're doing a case study of Hurricane Katrina, and more specifically, New Orleans. It's good working on current events, they keep updating and you can add stuff that wasn't there before.
