Residents walk near their homes during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Residents of a neighborhood walk through what remains of their homes two days after Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi, Mississippi August 31, 2005. When Hurricane Katrina roared ashore on the U.S. Gulf Coast on Monday, it sent a 30-foot (9-metre) storm surge into Biloxi. Many people were probably trapped in their homes by the ferocious wall of water. REUTERS/Frank Polich FJP/JK
