Biloxi Damages By Katrina

Exactly 3 years and a half today, Hurricane Katrina damage severely most of the places in Biloxi and other neighboring places of Mississippi. I was in the Philippines at that time, it is the fiesta of Cagayan de Oro City but my eyes glued on TV watching how Louisiana residents trapped inside their own city. Houses vanished and many lives were lost. Reports were focused mostly on that state for they suffered too much that no one ever imagined Katrina would really caused huge damage.Anyway, in Biloxi as of today, the casino and hotels eventually making its way to regain the business and it is showing progress. But, this place changed so much because you still can see the remnants of the building and houses that once stood in its beautiful place such as these pictures:I put a light arrow pointing to the flooring of the houses. Click the picture to see it clearly. Every vacant spaces that you see in here are all houses before, they are gone and afraid to rebuilt it back.Until now, they are still cleaning the area for some debris. Before the hurricane, there were hotels and buildings on those vacant lots.
This is the old area of the big hotel called Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel, washed out to the sea, you can see all the flooring again. But, they soon build the hotel adjacent to this area.
A big building, but you can only see what's left, the stairs and the land is being sold right now. This area is fronting the beach.
This is what remain in the Marina of Biloxi. This was built as a fancy Marina with huge rooftop and many big boats and fancy yachts dock in this place. The place today is a pile of gravel.This is not an unfinished construction. One of the many buildings that was badly damaged. Only this part were left. The picture at the top is the same building. Just want to share with you guys how sad the history of this area yet, it managed to move on and back to the normal place it was once before. The place is really beautiful though despite of these sight.
