The Storm
Students of Biloxi, Mississippi, Remember Hurricane Katrina

By: Barbara Barbieri McGrath

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the coastlines of Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

It was a storm the people of Biloxi, Mississippi, like many other Gulf Coast residents, will never forget. Students, teachers, and administrators from the Biloxi Public Schools share their stories from the days preceding Hurricane Katrina to those first days of recovery after the storm. And even while their city lay in ruins, one remarkable lighthouse survived, serving as a beacon of hope.

Their powerful images and moving personal accounts pay tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.
