Birth of Katrina

These pictures were taken by a man in Magee, 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.

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 of 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 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 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.

  1. That last one is of Katrina, the others are from various storms within the great plains. Tornado Alley. Still beautiful in that terrifyingly dangerous manner…


  2. Stunning photographs-truly scary! I’m glad I live in the UK where we don’t get storms on such a scale.
