Ο Μάρκος από την Αυστραλία μου έστειλε τις φωτογραφίες που βλέπετε. Είναι ένα έξοχο φωτογραφικό θέαμα. Ωστόσο, θα έλεγα ότι είναι καλύτερα να το βλέπουμε σε φωτογραφίες παρά να το υφιστάμεθα όπως τόσος κόσμος, εκεί στις περιοχές που πέρασε...

These pictures were taken 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 ini tial tidal wave from Hurricane Katrina. The tidal wave was approximately 35 to 40 feet high. When it slammed into the b each front communities of Bay Saint Louis and Waveland Mississippi to completely destroy 99% of every structure al ong the beach for 9 miles and over ? 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.

Can you imagine holding your camera steady enough to take these photos!
