Two views, one pile of rubble

This is the latest post in a series on Ocean Springs, Miss. Scroll down for the others and click the photos for enlargements.

This was an apartment complex.

There would have been no way for me to know, except that in that Sun Herald aerial photo package I mentioned yesterday, there was this picture:

Caption: Two apartment complexes on Beach Front Road in Ocean Springs were reduced to rubble.

The aerial photo was taken almost a month ago. No rebuilding has taken place, and who knows when it will. Too many questions remain about insurance and the future of the casinos, which employed 17,000 people.
