Senators are worried that repairs to New Orleans' levees may not offer enough protection against another tropical storm.

Republican Senator Susan Collins calls the findings troubling.
Democrat Joe Lieberman questions whether the levees could protect New Orleans from high tides, let alone another hurricane.
