All along the highway across from beach, the entire coastline of Mississippi was affected- walls of water took away the homes and lives of so many. Pieces of life hang in a tree dying from the salt water.

Signs mark where homes once stood; debris swept to the side of the road still waits, piles of rubble with bathtub here, shoe there, clothes everywhere, dead animals, rotting food. Now they are burning a lot of it so the air is nasty down there.
