John Sanders mourns on the once-pristine Biloxi Beach, Biloxi, Mississippi, September 2, 2005
This is from a phone post I made to LiveJournal on the morning of August 30, 2005.
Things are really, really terrible in Hattiesburg, from what my parents say. About 70% of Jackson doesn't have any power, none of Hattiesburg has any power, and nobody really knows anything about the coast yet... which is the scary thing, that they're not getting any information really... but what little they've heard through people who have gotten through on phones is that it is just completely .... it's just catastrophic. Apparently somebody said that this is the worst natural disaster that's ever hit America.
