Subdivision Ravaged by Katrina's Winds

This entire subdivision in Gulfport was less that two years old. Nonetheless, the homes were no match for Katrina's winds. Most houses in the new subdivision had severe wind damage. Like the one in this picture, most homes had one or both gable-ends completely blown out by the wind. This often led to the collapsing of interior ceilings, with attic insulation blown everywhere. (The white insulation throughout the subdivision looked like the first winter snowfall.) Also, notice the garage door which was crumpled like an aluminum can.
