Hurricane Katrina Memorial

Hurricane Katrina Memorial

Have you heard of the Hurricane Katrina Memorial located in Biloxi? Well, as a member of this community, we are glad to share some stories of this historic feature.

Hurricane Katrina Memorial is located on Highway 90 & Main Street, Biloxi, MS 39530. (across from Hard Rock Casino!)

The Memorial is dedicated to the MS Gulf Coast victims who departed in Hurricane Katrina, the horrible natural disaster to hit the United States on August 29, 2005. The Memorial is 12 feet tall, almost the height of the water during Hurricane Katrina’s storm surge at the Town Green, it includes a tile inlay of a wave, a glass case containing different items from destroyed buildings, & the names of the 170 victims who perished during the storm. 

After Hurricane Katrina

With the intrusion of Hurricane Katrina, the city has endured the most destructive force history has ever seen, but the residents are moving forward in a manner that makes even the mayor proud to serve. They’re restoring their homes, their lives & their businesses. The city is back to business, & it’s encouraged by the interest they are seeing.

This community was enjoying the most prosperous time in its 300-plus year history in the decade before Aug. 29, 2005. Now working to revive that renaissance & also provide the opportunity & quality of life that its residents & visitors deserve.

Hurricane Katrina -Before the Storm

The tropical depression which became Hurricane Katrina created over the Bahamas on August 23, 2005, & meteorologists were able to alert people in the Gulf Coast states that a major storm was on its way. By August 28, people were evacuated across the region. On that particular day, the National Weather Service foretold that after the storm hit, “many of the Gulf Coast regions will be uninhabitable for weeks or perhaps longer.”

Before the storm, the city’s officials feared that surge could overtop some levees & result in short-term flooding, but no one ever thought levees might collapse below their designed height. 

Hurricane Katrina – The Aftermath

Most people acted heroically in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The Coast Guard rescued about 34,000 people in New Orleans alone, & many citizens ordered boats, offered food & shelter, & did whatever necessary they could to help their neighbors. It took the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) days to organize operations in New Orleans. 

Katrina had left in her wake what one reporter called a “total disaster zone”. 

Officials appeared unaware of how bad things were in New Orleans & elsewhere: number of people stranded or missing, properties damaged, how much food, water & aid was needed
