0262 The residents of this project in Biloxi have all been evicted after the hurricane. They say that the landlord is using the excuse of the storm to have all of the building condemned so he can resell to the casinos. They also say that the landlord arrainged for power and water NOT to be restored to the neighborhood. Two residents left with just a bag on their shoulders after I offered them a ride out of town in our car. They had no goal other then to leave Biloxi. I asked why others had stayed. "It's all they know. The projects is all they know."
