The sky before Katrina Struck


The Sky Before Katrina Struck…

Whoever took these pictures did an awesome job.

And whoever said Katrina was’awesome and terrifying’ is

telling the truth. Wow, take a look at this ….

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 Hurricanemade landfall. The dance with Katrina, part

of her beauty as she leftdestruction 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 ofAugust 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 to completely destroy 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 homesin these

two communities of approximately 14,000 people.

  1. The sky scapes are beautiful and terrifying. That ocean, though: Just plain horrifying. Thank you for posting these photos.
