Prayers and satellite images

by

Don’t know if you folks shared my concern about the condition of Ocean Springs after seeing the Biloxi/Ocean Springs connecting bridge, but I felt a little better (and a little more frustrated) after finding these photos:

Here is a satellite image of Al’s church/bunker during the storm.

Here is a post-Katrina satellite image of the area. Besides the bridge the area doesn’t look nearly as bad as Waveland, Bay St. Louis nor the coasts of Gulfport and Biloxi.

The real frustration is how the bottom right of the picture ends a few hundred feet from the church’s side of Washington Avenue. A tight zoom on the bottom right shows the building’s almost directly across the street from Ocean Springs Church of Christ doing structurally well.

Prayers continue…

    Here’s a blog from the Biloxi Sun Herald. Its updated regularly, and I’m sure the info could be of use to Gulf Coast citizens if they could only get to it.

    The actual blog referenced above…

    Thanks, Dejon for posting the links. I’ve never been to Ocean Springs, but when I saw the bridge in the news I kinda freaked a bit.

    Has anyone seen a list or a link where we can let the displaced folks in this disaster know that we are willing to take them in? I talked to my pastor this morning and we’re going to circulate a list.

    I may go to Houston tomorrow, not sure yet.
