Hurricane Katrina,pictures of the Pascagoula Area.The Destruction and Rebuilding : Please feel free to Ask Questions about my experiences and events before,through and post Katrina.My Cameras were destroyed during Hurricane Katrina and took a while to get another one,so the photos weren't right after the storm.I think I got my Nikon E8700 Point and Shoot about 3 months after the storm.Hurricane Katrina was the costliest,and one of the deadliest Storms in U.S.History,with close to 200 billion dollars in damage,and 1,836 deaths,705 Missing.19 in Jackson County,and around 209 in Mississippi.The winds jumped from category three to five status in nine hours over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico,and reached its peak with 175 mph sustained,gusts reaching 217 mph.,and pressure at 902mbar.The storm weakened to category three status after an eyewall replacement cycle disrupted the intensity,but the storm nearly doubled in size.Hurricane force winds reached 120 miles outward from the eye.The storm lost hurricane strength when the Eye reached 150 miles inland near Meridian,Ms,and downgraded to tropical depression status near Clarksville,Tn.The remnants were distinguishable up in the Great Lakes region,and affected Eastern Canada.I was here,in Pascagoula when Katrina hit.We had to flee our home and go next door to our neighbors 2 story house and break their door down to reach higher ground.We watched our house,cars,and other things being destroyed.We had 59 percent damage to our house,but we are rebuilding.The depth of the water here(14 feet above sea level)was between 4-5 feet.If you have any questions,please ask.Thanks to everyone who helped the good people of Pascagoula,and others in Mississippi.If you worked down here and want to see what a house or other buildings look like now,let me know the name or address and I will try to put a photo on here.Thanks,Alan Hinkel.Update:30 Houses on Beach Blvd.,21 Inhabitable,9 Under Construction.09 October 2008.Update:Houses on the Pascagoula Beach on the Fourth Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
