SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Before Katrina, Hurricane Camille was the storm by which all other storms were measured against on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Camille made landfall in Waveland, and destroyed much of Pass Christian, but the damage was widespread across the coast. This video the White/Tate family donated is of a drive down Highway 90 in the days after the storm, that captures the damage from Bay St. Louis to East Biloxi.
