My grandparents own about 11 properties down in Gulfport so I get to see it often. before Katrina it was a popping little place and I would say it was Worth Visiting then. But now, a year afterwards it’s not built back much. If you’re going for the beach I think it would be better to aim a little closer to Florida. The shores in gulfport are still quite dirty. And when the tide goes out and comes back it brings in more debris.over 5 years ago
We were here on New Year’s Day 2005. All the fishing boats were in port because of the holiday. Photo ops for me.
Very strange: 8 months later I was wathcing the Weather Channel’s Hurricane Katrina footage back in Chattanooga and was amazed to see that the green boat in the photo (Luna Sea) was washed into the Beau Rivage parking lot in Biloxi by the waves. To my understanding, the captain was on board with this dog during the hurricane and both survived.over 7 years ago
I saw the devastion and again I want to say that I feel for all the people that lived here and all the people that lost family members from here. Please contact me if you are an evacuee from the coast. I want to get in touch with people from down there.over 7 years ago
We lived on the Gulfport SeaBee base. This was in the late 80’s, and it was an awesome time. I haven’t been back in at least a decade, and I was horrified to see the damage that Hurricane Katrina caused.
Gulfport is a strong community, and they will pull together and come back better than ever.over 7 years ago
