0261 Whats left of a supermarket in Biloxi. Right before the hurricane hit, when the poor realized that despite the rumours the civil defense was not going to come and bus them out, many people went to the stores bought loads of food. When the storm surge came, the food was drowned in their kitchens, and when the water receded the homes strained the refuse so that the floors and walls were covered in a thin black gruel of mud and rotting material. 11 days after the storm and people were still living in these homes, with nowhere to go and no way to get there.
