The timeline released ahead of the hearings showed that the earliest official report of a New Orleans levee breach came at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 29, just a few hours after Hurricane Katrina roared ashore. Word of the possible breach surfaced at the White House less than three hours later, at 11:13 a.m.
The Bush administration has said it only knew definitively early Tuesday, Aug. 30, the day after the storm, that the levees had been breached, based on an Army Corps of Engineers assessment.
