devastating shots from Hurricane Katrina are building on Flickr. fortunately it seems that not many people ventured out to take photos first hand, like the one shown here taken near an air force base in Biloxi. but there are lots of extensive collections Flickr users have been putting together of the most stricking news photos. here’s a shot of the eye taken from above the clouds, a strange contrast to the intense destruction left by the storm. our hearts and prayers go out to everyone effected.
