Here are some aerial photos of the town of Pass Christian. According to
figures released by the Pass Christian city government, before Katrina there
were approximately 8,000 residences in the town -- after Katrina, approximately
500 were still standing and most of those are uninhabitable.
Remains of the Harbor View Restaurant, Pass Christian, MS. One of our
favorite restaurants -- they had the best oyster and shrimp po' boys on the
Coast. Behind the restaurant was a big antique mall, bank, offices, and
much of the business section of Pass Christian.
This aerial view of Pass Christian shows a lot -- top left corner are Pass
Christian High School and Middle School, both standing but gutted by flood
waters. In the foreground are the remains of a Winn-Dixie supermarket and
CVS Pharmacy. In the lower right corner is the remains of a luxury condo
development that was under construction. In the rear of the photo, to the
left of center, you see two radio towers -- these are cell phone towers that
were on the property where we had most of our belongings stored -- under 20 feet
of water when Katrina hit.
This is the Wal-Mart along Highway 90 between Long Beach and Pass Christian.
Totally gutted -- storm surge went in the front and out the back, carrying
everything with it.
