The city of New Orleans is expected to dry out a lot faster than experts first predicted.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said most of the city could be drained within a month, though some areas hit by the storm surge could take longer.

The estimates are far shorter than early predictions by the corps, which has struggled to get breached levees repaired and pumps operational.

The news came as authorities shifted most of their attention to counting and removing the dead, after days spent cajoling the living to get out of a city beset by fetid floodwaters and scattered fires.

Search crews did rescue an elderly resident that held out for 12 days in her home.
