---the coast of Mississippi. Biloxi, gulfport. I saw a tv video where the reporter stood on a road and pointed the camera off to the north, into an open field that ran for miles, a field with leafless trees. he spoke about how there was NO damage here. he spoke this phrase "no damage" in a sad sarcastic tone, as he then said that the damage was so so severe that there was nothing left there that indicated any damage: one might assume this area had only some paper litter left from a big party, whereas last week this open tree field was a standard suburbian neighborhood!
Total ruin, wipeout!
