Updates From the Mississippi Coast

MSNBC is the only major news online that I have seen that is still covering the the Mississippi Gulf Coast recovery efforts on a daily basis. They have daily updates from two towns in Hancock County Mississippi that are virtually gone. Bay St. Louis and Waveland suffered greatly from the 40 foot storm surge created by Hurricane Katrina. Downtown Bay St. Louis sits on a 20 foot bluff. They had twenty feet of water that came through and decimated this beautiful little town. Check out the day by day rebuilding efforts in The Towns

It's so sad that for the most part, everyone else moves on as you're still trying to come to grips with the tragedy. Probably not unlike having someone close to you die. Sure everyone comes by at first...but then you're alone, with your grief and life in shambles.

I'm impressed MSNBC is still doing it.

esther,

So I am and what's so great is that they have a different story everyday from someone who is living there.

What happened down here is like a death, for things will never be the same and so much was lost.

I hope it's not getting to repititve for me to blogs about it so often. It's just there is so much destruction.
