The following photographs were passed onto photoinduced.com by one of our readers, Sharon.
These images were passed on to her.
When she first saw the email with Katrina in the subject line, Sharon wasn’t sure if she wanted to look at more of the devastating damage, heartache and hardship.
Howver,when she opened the email, these were the images enclosed. And she knew she wanted to share them.
We hope you do the same.
“I am passing along what appear to be photos of Katrina as she made land on the gulf coast last year. The pix are truly remarkable….
Photos of Katrina over Mississippi
“These pictures were 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 land fall.
Worth passing on!!!
The dance with Katrina, part of her beauty as she left destruction on her exit. They are remarkably dramatic.
The following picture was 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 is slammed into the beach front communities of Bay Saint Louis and Waveland Mississippi to completely destroyed 99% of every structure along the beach for 9 miles and over Â¼ of 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.
This picture was taken from the I-10 overpass after the storm passed facing south toward Waveland. This location is approximately 5 miles from the beach.”
Today, 10 months later, approximately 80% of the debris has been removed from the streets (many lots not been touched) and approximately 10% of the homes are habitable. ”
These images and more will now reside in our GALLERY.
