Katrina created a storm surge of over 20 feet that passed through the Gulf Port area in Mississippi. Before Katrina made her way to the Gulf Coast though, she left behind a huge mess on the Southeast coast of Florida as a category one storm. Damage is estimated at up to $2 billion according to Governor Jeb Bush. One couple we talked to from Florida Monday knows all too well the suffering that goes on after a hurricane. Ed Kinney of Punta Gorda went through Charlie last year, a category 4 storm. He told us, the damage he and his wife experienced is probably nothing compared to what the Gulf Coast is seeing with Katrina.
