NPR Segment on the Waveland Drug Store destroyed by Katrina

This segment comes from the Waveland Drug Store, about 0.25 miles away from my parents’ house.  It withstood Camille (the Cat 5 that hit in ’69), so the photo gives you an inkling into just how strong Katrina really was.  Yeah, it has changed hands in the past year or so, but it’s still the Waveland Drug Store to me.  I’ll have to scan in photos of what Waveland used to look like.

And now Rita has hit Category 5 strength.  Oh boy…

    The Lutheran Church of the Pines located amost across the street from the drug store did not get distroyed! Somehow this church with over 6 feet of water within its walls remained standing. Damage to the interior walls of the santuary, kitchen and meeting rooms was extensive but volunteer labor removed the pews, carpet and Dry wall and have given it a chance to recover. I spent a couple of days there before running back to Florida from Rita. I hope to someday return to actually attend a service.
