Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

With a major levee break finally plugged, engineers struggle to pump out the flooded city of New Orleans. So how long will it take? And as the water recedes, how gruesome will the discoveries be? We'll get insight from William Marcuson, president-elect of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Then, as New Orleans struggles to get its head above the floodwaters, a storm of controversy is brewing over the federal response to Hurricane Katrina. Congress is calling for an investigation, while President Bush says he'll head up a separate probe into what went right and what went wrong. We'll get fair and balanced reaction from Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn.

And, does the federal response to Hurricane Katrina raise red flags about the U.S.'s readiness for another terror attack? Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., member of the House Homeland Security Committee, weighs in.

Plus, people are not the only ones affected by Hurricane Katrina — hundreds of pets have also been left homeless. So what's being done to help the animals? We'll get the lowdown from Julie Morris, senior vice president of National Outreach for the ASPCA.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
