I came to Waveland as a volunteer 5 days after the storm and again in 6 weeks later in October and could not tell any difference at all in the amount of cleanup that had taken place. I am coming back at the end of June, can I expect a big improvement?

In theory, yes you should be able to see a big difference.

Depending on where you get the information, anywhere from 70-90% of the debris is gone. That does NOT mean the boats are out of the trees, the dead trees are down, or the remaining houses that need demolishing are gone. It just means you shouldn't see as many streets line with 2 stories of debris.

I hope this helps.

If you want, come to my blog for more information on all of Hancock County. www.KatrinaNetworking.blogspot.com or - if you are interested in only Waveland - my blog for them - www.WavelandRelief.blogspot.com .

Let me know how your trip goes!
