Hurricane Ike's Long Reach

Thursday, Mississippi was affected by Hurricane Ike. We started to get a storm surge. Friday, even though Hurricane Ike was to our southwest, the flooding was worse. Below, are some pictures from Friday.

Shrimp and other boats seek safe harbor on Biloxi's Back Bay.


Some seek safe harbor in places like D'Iberville's Small Craft harbor. After I took this picture, the water rose another 1-2 feet before beginning to recede.


The piers and docks at D'iberville's Small Craft were covered with water.


Pelicans and other birds took advantage of the plentiful fish that came in with the water on Biloxi's Back Bay.


Pelicans catch the fish by diving head first in the water. I was lucky to get this shot just as the head went underwater. It did get the fish.
