A western clothing store (L) is badly damaged while a restaurant next door remains intact after Hurricane Katrina hit Gulfport, Mississippi August 29, 2005. Hurricane Katrina ripped into the U.S. Gulf Coast on Monday, stranding people on rooftops as it pummeled the historic jazz city New Orleans with 100 mph (160 kph) winds and swamped Mississippi resort towns and lowlands with a crushing surge of seawater.

A television station loses its broadcasting tower and roof during Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi, Mississippi August 29, 2005. Much of the city was heavily damaged during the peak of the category four storm. The storm slammed into New Orleans on Monday with winds of 135 mph (216 kph), shutting 91 percent of the normal 1.5 million barrels per day of crude oil production in the Gulf Coast region.

An oil rig that broke loose during Hurricane Katrina is wedged under the Cochrane Bridge in Mobile, Alabama. The rig tore free of its moorings as Hurricane Katrina lashed the Alabama coast before surging downriver and smashing into the suspension bridge.(AFP/Stan Honda)

Due to the draft of the rig and the depth of the water, the only way to get that rig out of there will be to cut it up in pieces. This is going to be a mess, and the bridge is not built for that kind of impact. This is a mess, ouch. Speaking as a Naval Architect.

Is there any chance the level of the platform will drop with the receding water from the storm surge (or due to rain)?

Saw an few moments of video from the International Space Station of Katrina. That thing was a monster. When you see it from that vantage point, it's just aweinspiring. Sergei Krikalev and John Phillips had a great seat for that view.

No.

It was a STUPID comment to make and it is COMPLETELY unrelated to this thread.

Not to mention completely inaccurate.....

All those historic buildings. What a disaster!

(I'm concerned for the people, too, of course, but if they're sitting on the front porch, they're obviously fine!)
