Japan tsunami images evoke memories of Hurricane Katrina for Gulf residents

The photos are uncannily similar: Bridges destroyed in Biloxi Back Bay, bridges destroyed in Namegata, Japan; rail containers scattered through Gulfport, rail containers scattered in Sendai, northern Japan. Even a satellite image of a huge whirlpool created by the catastrophic Japan tsunami bears an eerie resemblance to a satellite photo of the swirl of Hurricane Katrina in South Mississippi in August 2005.
