Awesome Katrina Pictures

Received these pictures in an email today.  The first 8 were taken by a man in Magee,  MS.  The last picture was taken from the third story balcony of Saint Stanislaus College located next door to Our Lady of the Gulf church in Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi on the morning of August 29th, 2005.  

This is believed to be the initial tidal wave from Hurricane Katrina.  The tidal wave was approximately 35 to 40 feet high.  When it slammed into the beach front communities of Bay Saint Louis and Waveland, Mississippi to completely destroy 99% of every structure along the beach for 9 miles and over a mile inland.
