  • Poor Long Beach, Gulfport, and Biloxi, Mississippi. 

    Those are my ol' stomping grounds from my freshman year at college,
    when I attended a small girls' college, Gulf Park, in Long Beach. 
    I arrived shortly after Camille, which delayed the start of the school

    If you've never seen first-hand the damage done by a Category Five hurricane, trust's impressive.    Highway 90 was broken in places, houses cut in half, trees uprooted, buildings smashed.....

    Winds at Pascagoula, Mississippi have already gusted to 113 mph.  Highway 90 completely submerged in the Gulfport area.

    And again there are dingalings too dumb to come in out of the hurricane, notably TV reporters!
