|Description||I took this photograph of the Spinnaker Point condos in Pascagoula MS that were destroyed by surge. The partially-remaining damaged condo that remains was one of 40, with the remainder washed away, as seen on page 8 in the MS Press, in a photo taken the day after the hurricane made landfall: http://www.gulflive.com/mississippipress/pdf/083105.pdf
Notice the two deck railing planters, with the plants still in them, remain on the deck of the 2nd floor (three stories above ground level).Surge (storm tide, technically) here in eastern Pascagoula reached 16-18 feet, and there would have been waves on top of the surge at a location on the waterfront such as this one. The sheetrock has been pulled away from the studs about four feet up on the 1st floor; this likely tallies with the height of the surge.
