Some AMAZING Katrina Photos - Tornadoes and Tidal Wave
Above: The Sky Before Katrina Struck...
These pictures were supposedly made by a man in Magee , MS
where the eye of the storm passed thru- what an
experience. Magee is 150 miles North of Waveland, Mississippi
where the Hurricane made landfall.
The dance with Katrina, part of her beauty as she left destruction on
They are remarkably dramatic...
The Katrina tidal wave picture (above) was supposed to have been taken from the third story balcony of Saint Stanislaus College located next door to Our Lady of the Gulf Church in Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi on the morning of August 29th, 2005.
This is believed to be the initial tidal wave from Hurricane Katrina.
The tidal wave was approximately 35 to 40 feet high. When it slammed into the beach front communities of Bay Saint Louis and Waveland, Mississippi, it completely destroyed 99% of every structure along the beach for 9 miles and over a mile inland.
The destruction only started there. The flooding that continued inland destroyed the contents of all but 35 homes in these two communities of approximately 14,000 people.
These photos should be kept in mind as we approach yet another Hurricane season...
