SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

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

Sunday, August 17th marks the 45th anniversary of the storm that left 256 people dead; 143 of those deaths happened on the 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.
