A South Mississippi hurricane journal

A perfect e-mail 

Rebecca Crandall e-mails: I’m not sure how much this helps, but I thought I’d share how my relatives faired so that others worrying about nearby places might be able to have a feel for a couple of places. My brother live just south of East Pass Road in Gulfport, MS. He and his house are “okay.” My aunt and uncle just a block or two off of N. Beach Blvd in Bay Saint Louis, MS. They weathered the hurricane in Picayune (some trees down and other wind damage, but mostly fine) and went back to their property. Their house was completely gone. They are staying with friends in Waveland whose house is unharmed. I’m not sure where the friends lived. (My aunt called my dad while they were getting supplies in Pensacola.) If anybody else has similar anecdotes, please share them. This greatly helps build the knowledge base. Great job Rebecca, I'm just sorry you didn't have better news to share.

My father lives just north of Pass road, just east of DeBuys. He has already contacted me letting me know that he is ok, and the house is ok, other than trees down and damage to the carport. He said his neighborhood seems intact for the most part.
