look here for extreme closeup's from 8/31 of biloxi.
look at the isle of capri hotel.. the back of the hotel
(the casino, which has to be over water for legality is GONE)
also look inland.. and at the bridge..everything is flattened.

The casino in the picture is the Beau Rivage, the nicest of the Biloxi casinos both before and after Katrina. Amazingly, it sustained a lot less damage than all the others except Boomtown, which is on the other side of the city. If you're into high stakes Baccarat in Biloxi, this is the place.
