Hurricane Katrina's Storm Surge

Today was the first time I have seen video of the storm surge created by Hurricane Katrina. Cricket sent me a link to a video of it. I think the hotel in the video may be the Grand Casino's Hotel in Gulfport. I am not sure though. All I know is that everyone in this video by the grace of God came out alive even the hapless person in the car. Because the lights on the car came on, I thought someone was in it. Not so.

This is just a sampling of the hammering from the brutal 30-40 foot storm surge that ravaged the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Hurricane Katrina Storm Surge - Gulfport MS

UPDATE: I found another site that has still photos of the video and also gives the location of which hotel they were staying at. It was the Holiday Inn which is west of the Grand Casino. Hurricane Katrina

I am stunned by this Seawitch...and as you said, "this is just a sampling".

Me too and that's one of the reasons I leave even though I'm ten miles from the beach. A surge like the one we had follows creeks, rivers, ditches, and bayous. There is no stopping it.
