10 years ago, Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast. Mississippi's coastline was forever changed by this storm; entire neighborhoods were destroyed by the storm surge and 120 mph winds. Water went as far as 12 miles inland. During this anniversary, MPB remembers Hurricane Katrina for the destructive force it was, while recognizing the incredible courage and resilency of the Gulf Coast as they recovered from this once-in-a-lifetime storm.
