Hurricane Camille Photos

Hurricane Camille Photos - As we watch the continued horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, it is sobering to remember that this has happened before. Katrina may be worse but Camille was also destructive.

These photos were taken by Chauncey Hinman of Gulfport, Mississippi. The storm hit the USA in 1969.

From the site:

Hurricane Camille is said to be the worst storm ever to hit mainland United States. With winds in excess of 200 mph and tides over 20 feet, Hurricane Camille smashed into the Mississippi Gulf Coast on Sunday night, the 17th of August and continued its devastating path until the early hours of Monday, the 18th.

Hi Miland, just wanted to let you know that I recommended you today in honor of Blog Day.

Thank you Stephanie. I have to be honest, I was unfamiliar with the concept of Blog Day. I just looked it up. Now I know!

Unfortunately, I didn't learn about this in time to participate this year but maybe I can find 5 worthy sites to post about next year for Blog Day 2006.
