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 a large rock groin extending from the beach and multiple single family homes along the coastline. The bottom image was taken on August 31, 2005, two days after landfall of Hurricane Katrina. In this image, notice the landward extent of damage, which is estimated by researchers to reach up to two kilometers from the coastline. Sand covers the oceanfront road, and the next road inland was still flooded at the time of the aerial survey.
