I believe that the main building has been rebuilt before the typhoon. I do not believe it is the same building dragged.

In this picture there is also a call for help, to be seen from above.

Look at the Marina and mooring docks along the shore line, lower right. They depend a lot on fishing for livelihood and the boats and Marina are gone.

Just a couple of anomalies I noticed;
Why does the object/structure circled on the left appear to have relatively grown in size?
And what can account for the seeming rotation of the object/structure circled on the right?



As for the 2nd one, water is extremely powerful.
Looks as tho the water swept it sideways.

Katrina played hell with the Mississippi gulf coast, including moving large casino barges inland and away from their original location by a mile or so.
Not to mention wiped the houses clean off their foundation, nothing left but a slab of concrete.
They had a 30 ft. storm surge around Bioloxi/Gulf Port/Waveland, Ms. so I would think that they endured about the same if not worse from Typhoon Haiyan

My husband and I went there as soon as they reopened the roads and it was total devastation....
I can only imagine what those poor people went through with the typhoon and are still going through.

My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Katrina was a Cat 3 storm with sustained winds of 125 mph when it made landfall...Haiyan was Cat 5 with winds at 195 and gusting to 225. Not to take anything from Katrina, which was definitely devastating, I believe Haiyan was much more devastating. Probably to a point of disbelief. Imagine experiencing the blow and then the panic and fear in the days that follow as society collapses around you...just as they did in New Orleans. My thoughts and prayers go out to them as well.

That was my whole point....

That if Katrina was able to do that much damage, and I was giving a possible explanation for a building to be turned and moved, I can only imagine what a CAT 5 would do to the Philippines and all the other islands there.

I saw first hand the devastation from Katrina [CAT 3] along the Gulf Coast. The power of water is mind blowing.

Now then, the New Orleans fiasco was caused by piss poor levees the engineers knew before hand that they couldn't sustain much more than a CAT 3.....it flooded after the hurricane passed, when the levees finally broke.
Still doesn't justify the devastation & loss that it created. It could have been prevented had TPTB went ahead and spent more money to do it right the first time.
