Here are some Pictures of the storm, not seen by many. This was taken from the suicide squad on duty during the storm.

The First picture is just before the storm hit, you can see the dark skies of Katrina coming from the left.

Default Katrina Treasure Bay Pictures

Your pictures of the before and aftermath of Treasure Bay was a soul-shaking reminder of what was and what is. Looking at those photos just lets me know how quickly things can change in the blink of an eye. How far have they gotten with the rebuilding of that area? I just get bits and pieces watching the national news stations. They don't give you a whole lot of detail as far as the rebuilding of that area. I really would love to see New Orleans make a big come back.

One of the biggest beefs Mississippians have is the fact that New Orleans gets all this attention and the Mississippi Gulf Coast is ignored. We took the worst of the storm.

Well anyways.. Progress is being made all over. It will never be the same.. most if not all the old homes that flanked the beach are gone, never to be rebuilt. Insurance companies wont insure many below the railroad tracks. And big business like Condos are moving in in droves. Also Casinos.. I say by 2015 the Gulf Coast there will rival Las Vegas in many ways. Treasure Bay is just about complete, they just have to restructure the back end now... the main casino and hotel are done. When your out there, check it out, its a totally different feel, more up scale. the New ownership wanted to loose the old Pirate ship, and move forward to this new design.. it is very nice, and you will enjoy it. I no longer work there, and have move from the area to take care of a sick relative. But plan to return someday.. as I feel in love with the whole area and people.

No problem, Muhnay - there's usually very little that can't be worked out

Hey, Happy New Year to you and to all the Mississippi posters. I have to say - I'm Arkansas born and bred but spent a number of years in Jackson while in high school...this is without a doubt the most pleasant forum to moderate - something about those southern Mississippi manners!

May 2008 be the best for everyone.

I was talking to someone just the other day about the lack of pictures on the beach during the storm. I lived on the beach when Katrina hit, and I have always wondered what it really looked like. Was it a tidal wave or a huge swell? Maybe that is morbid. I don't know.

Muhnay,
Are you in El Paso now? Just wondering. My sis and family lost everything in the storm and moved there. They have just recently moved back!

It was a huge swell.. I never saw a huge wave.. but then again I was in a small stairwell with 9 other people.

I have pictures from friends who were on the second story peek of their house and the water is at their feet. They told me they had to decide do we stay strapped here, or do we jump in the water and swim for the tree? There is a pictures of Treasure Bay at the Casino with the water over the top of that second floor casino area.. but I don't have them. We had pictures in the blue tunnel all blown up of the damage, they are in storage in the back now.

While I worked at State Farm Claims office I saw so many images of the flooding, and stuff that was just gone. My heart hurt from the pain I saw on a daily basis while working there. But the people in that office were great.. I know there is much animosity toward them.. but I found them to be very caring, and compassionate.

Anyways yeah I'm back in El Paso, to take care of a family member, but once it works out either way.. I am outta here again. I will be back in Gulfport. I loved it there.

I just finished a seven day cruise to the East Caribbean and ALMOST every person I met, when they found out I was from the Mississippi coast asked how the rebuilding of New Orleons was coming.
I actually met one guy who claimed to be studying to be an Oceanographer who told me the storm surge wiped out NO.
