WAVELAND, Mississippi (AP) -- Hurricane Katrina seemed to take a particular vengeance out on Waveland, Mississippi.
The storm virtually took out Waveland, prompting state officials to say it took a harder hit from the wind and water than any other town along the coast.
Rescue workers there Wednesday found shell-shocked survivors scavenging what they could from homes and businesses that were completely washed away.
