Hurricane Katrina Memorial

Highway 90 & Main Street, Biloxi, MS 39530

Memorial dedicated to the MS Gulf Coast victims who perished in Hurricane Katrina - the worst natural disaster to hit the United States on August 29, 2005. The Memorial stands 12 feet tall, about the height of the water during Hurricane Katrina's storm surge at the Town Green, contains a tile inlay of a wave, a glass case containing various items from destroyed buildings, and the names of the 170 victims that perished during the storm. ABC's "Extreme Makeover" crew dedicated the memorial on February 15, 2006. The Katrina Memorial is located on Highway 90 in Biloxi's Town Green (across from Hard Rock Casino!)
