    Default My Hurricane Katrina pics

    I just returned from the Gulfport-Biloxi area and took a lot of the pics of peoples homes, cars, and lives destroyed. Please bare with me at how long it takes me to post my pics.

    Mods....I hope it is ok that I started a new thread. I talked to people who lost everything in the world that they owned. I want the good people here at vhforums to see what has happened to their neighbors and friends along the Gulf Coast....

    Thank you....


    This is a pic of a home located on the Northside of the Back Bay of Biloxi. The bottom floor was washed out and pushed across the street by Katrina's 25 ft storm surge. The House was probably a 1/2 mile from the Back Bay....

    You can see the Back Bay of Biloxi in the background. Imagine the 25ft storm surge rolling from that.

    Thanks for posting the picks Dennis.

    As a General Contractor I can tell you those homes are not repairable, Push them over and start again.

    I spoke to a lady who lived at the end of this street....she told me about 4 of her neighboors who died. I have photographed the remains of the homes where they died, but I will not point them out specifically.

    She described to me how one neighboor was too old to crawl into his attic and died trying to get in. One neighboor was too large to fit into his attic and he drowned. One neighboor was found decapitated 15 feet up in an oak tree and another was seen drowning but his body had not been found yet. Her house was located where the storm surge crested. She was able to watch the horror unfold from her house.

    The storm surge flowed right through this house...it's just a shell now. All the things that make a home...pics, clothes, furniture...were laying everywhere.

    This is the last one for tonight...it's looking out at the Bay of St.Louis. It was once a heavily used 4 lane highway. Families were converging on this spot because for some reason cell phones would work here at this spot. I would see other "clear" spots on different areas of the MS Gulf Coast where cell phones would work and people were trying to contact loved ones.

    I have a ton more pics to post and I got 3 hours of vid footage. I will post more pics over the next few days.

    Keep these people in your thoughts. Many have nothing now....

    Such horrible devastation. Wow.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.
    False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
