Katrina Disaster Response - Bihn's Story


Our most memorable moment from the last trip out to Biloxi, MS was meeting a Vietnamese man named Bihn (Ben) and his family.

Bihn and his family owned a shrimp boat and rode out the storm in a canal approximately 10 miles from the coast. Many of us on the disaster relief teams remember passing over a bridge and seeing several boats on the shorline of a canal. It was in this canal that Bihn and a total of 10 people on his 70' shrimp boat waited out hurricane Katrina. Bihn's boat along with 5 other boats all lashed together faced the onslaught of Katrina for more than 12 hours in that canal.

After the storm they had to wait for three and a half weeks before being rescued and returning to dock. That three and a half week period was quite an ordeal because many people who also waited out the storm in the canal died, and those that survived had to wait amongst those that died for that long period of time.

We were quite touched by Bihn and his story. You can read the extended version on my Katrina Disaster Relief blog.
