Remembering Katrina

June is the start of hurricane season. Hurricane Katrina is one of the worst hurricanes that hit the US and in this area, the water surge is as high as 35-37 feet. The tree at the top of this hill has a washer nailed to it showing the water level of that hurricane. No wonder that all the houses here are swallowed to the sea.
That is the same tree and I put the red mark to show the water level. If you click the picture, there is a red plastic nailed on the tree showing the water level of the surge coming from the sea.
This is a street few miles away from Front Beach. But, if you click the picture, there is a tiny mark on the post, that is the level of water.
The water in this area is as tall as this man in the picture.
that is the caption...

This is the little town going to the beach.
The busy highway and that is our cousin on the motorcycle, our guide on all those places.


  1. Ni-imagine ko lang hurricane katrina, takot na ko.. must be horrible!

  2. i saw the news before and talagang touched ako sa nangyari. lubog tlaga hlos lahat. Thanks for posting this, Ams. Kinda reminded me to be grateful to God for sparing us of Katrina-like disaster. Hwag naman sana dito, lalo na ngayon tagulan na dito.

    Take care Ams!

  3. we passed by gulf coast on our way home to denver from orlando last year, and we still saw traces of the damages caused by katrina. i pray that area will be restored to its full glory very soon.

  4. holy cow...grabi sad ka taas ang tubig diay te no..balo baka mo langoy? hehehhe...kuyawan man sad ta ani....dire wala man nuon baha ug uban pa...sunog lang dire....:)

  5. hi amy. i saw that hurricane Katrina in the news. ang lalim ng tubig at ang laki pa ng damage. sana di na maulit yon . i just pray that you will be alright and safe there always.

    i added you too. thanks

  6. I just hope ate amy it won't happen again.

  7. yeah, pray that it wont happen anywhere else again..
    have a nice day, Amy!

  8. I remember Katrina very well, and how it effected us all. I was living in Pennsylvania at the time after a job transfer, but was in North Carolina on vacation when news of this broke. I know two good friends of mine went down to help with the relief, and they told me many times that it was much worse in person than what was shown on TV. That's scary to think that.

    This is one of those tragic events that I'll always remember.

  9. cge lang click ng click yung camera hehe gaganda nman ng mga view lagi na nkukuha mo ate eto na ako hehe bayad utang

  10. Haguy ayaw na tawon na pabalika si katrina..kataas ba anang tubig. naa ka ba andam diha nga salbabida..kabalo ka ba langoy Amz, o kaya's pag andam ug galon nga plastic unya naa taklob, kay kung mubalik si katrina, gak-sa dayon imo galon aron mulutaw lang ka unya sikad gamay hehehe
