Bay St. Louis and Waveland
The eye of the storm struck Hancock County. Most of these photos were taken about three weeks after Katrina.

Hi Steve, I am from Miami, FL. and I participated in the Project Noah disaster relief effort April 9-16, 2006. I was moved by the dramatic pictures you posted in your gallery. Thank you for sharing these photos of the aftermath which I neglected to take due to the time and work involved. The Waveland Mission Project impacted my life in many ways, and I am grateful for the work that you do to make it possible to share the experience.
I live in the Cedar Point area of Bay St. Louis and over a year later, if you took pictures, they would not look significantly different than those you took right after the storm. I am fortunate to live on one of the first few streets where civilization still exists, although in somewhat of a limited form. However, when I drive down 90 or see people moving back into their homes, it is heartening to see how far we've come. Thanks for sharing the memories of what it was and the opportunity for gratitude for what it is now and someday will be.
hi im from diamondhead mississippi and myhouse got destoryed
Thanks Steve, for sharing our loss with the world. I live in Waveland,lost my home but still I was able to get hundreds of photos, amazing how many are the same as you shared here with us? One important thing, one hasn't lived until they sleep under the stars on bare concrete for three weeks in 95 degree temperatures wearing the same clothes, the only clothes one has, while wondering from where the next meal will come? We still face massive cleanup and rebuilding challanges, sadly many of us will never live to see our beloved City of Waveland fully recover from such a massive disaster. Seven months later, many continue to remain homeless, many streets void of all homes or life, we look like an area of baron, desolate, wasteland filled with Katrina's trash and garbage. Thanks again for sharing our misfortune with the world.
Thank you for these pictures. I lived in Waveland for seven years and graduated from St. Stanisl.aus
Wonderful photos! I have lived in Bay St. Louis all of my life. With Katrina's aftermath, the natives were incredibly overwhelmed. We weren't in a good emotional state, and we didn't have much time to capture the images in photographs. Thank you for sharing with us your great talent. It's very much appreciated! Hope to see more soon.
