Since we need the generator for the fridge, the next update will be this evening sometime.

The coast to a couple hundred yards inland is absolutely smashed. Who knows how many people are still buried in the rubble. I didn’t think anyone would try to ride it out down there, but judging from my brother’s neighborhood, many people did. Whoever did is buried under garbage.

Pass Christian is smashed even farther inland. We had to pick our way around power lines and houses in the streets to go see how my mom’s and other brother’s places fared. North Street is impassable, although they are starting to clear it. Their subdivision had 20 feet of water, more or less. They won’t be living there for months, if the house and apartment can ever be rehabilitated.
