On August 29, 2005, the Alabama coast was devastated by Hurricane Katrina, with a local storm surge of nearly 16 feet, and higher waves, which engulfed the city of Bayou La Batre and pushed over 23 shrimp boats and the cargo ship named "Caribbean Clipper" onto shore, along with over 6 fishing boats aground (4 shown). The captain rode out Katrina on the 179-foot cargo ship M/V Caribbean Clipper, owned by Caribbean Shipping Inc., and the ship was returned to sea, six months later, using a large crane to unload the cargo and re-float the hull.
