Images were made during the day of, after and several weeks following Hurricane Katrina.
On August 29, 2005, Catagory 3 Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Mississippi-Louisiana state line. Hurricane Katrina was one of the strongest storms to impact the coast of the United States during the last 100 years. With sustained winds during landfall of 125 mph (110 kts, a strong category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale) and minimum central pressure the third lowest on record at landfall (920 mb), Katrina caused widespread devastation along the central Gulf Coast states of the U.S. Cities such as Gulfport, Biloxi, Ocean Springs and Pascagoula, Mississippi, were heavily impacted by the storm. The smaller cities of Waveland, Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian and Long Beach, Mississippi, bore the brunt of Katrina's force.
