The Sky Before Katrina Struck... 
Whoever took 
these pictures did an awesome job.
And whoever 
said Katrina was 'awesome and 
terrifying' is telling the truth.
Wow, take a look at this ....
These pictures were made by a man in Magee , MS
where the eye of the storm passed thru ...
what an experience.
Magee is 150 
miles North of Waveland , Mississippi
where the 
Hurricane made landfall.
The dance with 
Katrina, part of her beauty as she left destruction on 
her exit.
They are 
remarkably dramatic...

The following 
picture was taken from the third story balcony of Saint Stanislaus College 
located next door to Our Lady of the Gulf church in Bay Saint Louis, 
Mississippi on the morning of August 29th, 
This is 
believed to be the initial tidal wave from Hurricane Katrina.
The tidal wave 
was approximately 35 to 40 feet high.
When it slammed 
into the beach front communities of Bay Saint Louis and Waveland , 
Mississippi to completely destroy 99% of every structure along the beach 
for 9 miles and over a mile inland.
The destruction 
only started there.
The flooding 
that continued inland destroyed the contents of all but 35 
homes in these two 
communities of approximately 14,000 people.
