Ocean Springs update 

The Sun Herald's Quincy Collins reports from Ocean Springs: In Ocean Springs and St. Martin, damage to homes and businesses between Beach Street and U.S. 90 and along the bayou suffered severe damage. Katrina's wind and surged also crushed waterfront homes in Gulf Hills. At the reserve apartments, roofs, walls and siding were peeled off buildings. Power crews and emergency responders have been busy clearing the community since Tuesday. In historic Ocean Sprngs many hames and businesses weathered the storm, but others suffered severe damage from fallen trees and debrise. Hancock Bank on Washington Avenue has been opened. U.S. 90 between Ocean Springs and Pascagoula is open.

Can anyone tellme where Grand Teton Avenue fits in the area described?
Could someone please tell me how much damage was done on Monticelle? My cousin and his wife just moved there a couple of months ago.
Is the Shearwater Pottery place OK?and the Museum in downtown OS?
I would like to see pictures of what has happened to the city i live in since i can not see it in person.Please show picture of Ocean Springs,I live off Neptune Ave.
Can you get through to the Reserve Apt on Washington, is there power? What is I-10 like in the area? Is the building still standing? How high did the water get?
I'm also wanting to know about Shearwater Pottery and the Museum. What about the National Seashore? The Bienville Place development?
Shearwater Pottery sustained some damage, but is ok according to the information I found on the web. I am searching for information on Ocean Pointe Apartments--specifically the part that used to be d'Iberville Apartments with the gazebo party room and round pool. I cannot tell from the photo I have found if it is heavily damaged or just rubble.

Nice post. hibernia national bank
Be prepared for the next hurricane weather or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
Shearwater Pottery is not okay at all. All the pottery buildings sustained substantial damage, and the showroom was completely lost. The fireplace in the show room with original tiles is in a broken heap. There has been no production since the storm, but should be as soon as power is restored. Yes! Two months and they still aren't in production.
