Photo sets of Waveland, Mississippi, pre- and post-Katrina

Detailed Description

The top image, taken off the coast of Waveland, Mississippi, in July 1998, shows several large oceanfront homes, and thick wooded vegetation bordering the sandy beach. The bottom image shows the same location on August 31, 2005, two days after landfall of Hurricane Katrina. All of the houses have been destroyed, and the tennis court behind the house on the far right is no longer recognizable. The vegetation, which should be at its peak in August, has been stripped from the trees.
