Pass Chritian revival after Hurricane Katrina

The Problem

Hurricane Katrina's storm surge at Pass Christian leveling Pass Christian up to half a mile inland from the shore. Nearly 70 percent of all Pass Christian homes were severely damaged and the city lost nearly all of its businesses. Despite being one of the hardest hit communities, Pass Christian was largely neglected in initial relief efforts, as the Red Cross and FEMA failed to arrive in strength until more than a week after the storm made landfall.

Plan of Action

When we re-visited in 2007, we saw that the town had recovered considerably. We undertook one project which is to help out pack all the Pass Chritian library books that were salvaged from the storm and be made available to be shipped to the new location. The town now has a working library where stories are being read to little kids.
