Ten years ago hurricane Katrina slammed into Bay St. Louis and Waveland Mississippi along with St. Bernard parish and St. Tammany parish in Louisiana. The devastation was widespread all along the Gulf coast. Katrina was a study in contrasts of competance. From the gross lack of preparedness to the botched rescue efforts. From FEMA director Michael (“Heckuva Job Brownie”) Brown to General Honoré turning things around and famously yelling at a solder who had a gun: “We’re on a rescue mission damn it!”
Some things are back, some not. Let’s hope nothing like that ever happens again.
