Debris from winds around my home in Baton Rouge from Hurricane Katrina

At the site of the St. Rita Nursing home tragedy in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina drowned 30 elderly residents in the home.

Was reminded by the news that today is the 12 year anniversary of Katrina. So here's one from the archives.

Disclaimer: This picture was not taken by me.

I put it here to commemorate the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina turned slightly eastward before slamming into shore redirecting the storm's most potent winds and rain away from the vulnerable, low lying New Orleans area. Katrina weakened slightly overnight to a Category 4 storm and her eastward movement put the western eyewall - the weaker side of the strongest winds - over New Orleans. This doesn't mean New Orleans has been spared her wrath completely, the city is still getting hit with 145 mph winds today and the possibility of a 20 foot storm surge.

 

Katrina, which cut across Florida last week leaving nine dead and massive damage, had intensified into a Category 5 storm over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, reaching top winds of 175 mph before weakening as it neared the coast.

 

A hurricane warning is in effect for the north-central Gulf Coast from Morgan City, La., to the Alabama-Florida line. Tornado warnings were posted for Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

This series depicts a portion of the wreckage left by hurricane Katrina on the strip of land spanning Mobile Bay in Mobile, AL.

I didn't take this, I found it at weatherbug. It's the only time I've seen the pic, so I thought I'd save if for posterity. The McD's is now a gazebo, it seems.

This is probably copyrighted. I'd like to think that my appropriation is fair use, but this will probably have to be removed at some point. Used without permission.

 

Actually, I saw an image like this on BBC, so it may belong to them . . .

This sign was brought down by Hurricane Katrina.

 

Some people thought that the original was photoshopped... so here it is in the daylight.

Hurricane Katrina from my townhouse in Doral, Florida (West Miami). Like any good weather person, I left the safety of my home to go outside, plug in my rope lights and shoot photos in the middle of a hurricane. Katrina landed right on the line between Broward and Miami Dade Country and traveled 20 miles Southwest to fly over my house before heading into the Gulf of Mexico.

East of Causeway Rd. on 90 is where we really were seeing water. in other parts of the city i could get in but couldnt get in far enough to do any rescues so tried to stay out of the of those who were working even though i hated that i wasnt working on one of those fire trucks. I knew they had asked no more firefighters come in right now.

He said that the water here was going down into a storm drain.

A house in New Orleans (Lakeview), after Hurricane Katrina. February 2006

Compare this shot with this one which shows where my brother lives (lived?). If anybody has any info of what's gone on in the 3100 block of Royal St. in New Orleans, I'd be quite appreciative if you could send it along (flooding, looting, pictures of status).

 

My prayers are with those in NO and for their families.

65 mph winds ain't got nuthin on me... this is possibly the stupidest thing I've ever done.

Ironically... the sign at the 'Hurricane Bay' carwash wash ripped apart during the storm.

After the levees broke. Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans

 

This is the CD cover for my annual Christmas Mix that I mail out. We

sent out almost 90 copies this year. This is the last year we're doing

this.

 

This is the inside cover track listing:

Please enjoy all of the wonderful Christmas music that we were able

to loot this past year. As years go, this one was awful. Let's try harder

next year, people. And remember: here on the Gulf Coast, just because

you have a tree in your living room, doesn't necessarily mean it's Christmas!
