I came across a list today of storms that have caused significant damage in Biloxi in the past 40 years. Among the other aspects of site analysis you are already addressing, someone should look into the extents of these storms. They are:

  • Hurricane Betsy (1965)
  • Hurricane Camille (1969)
  • Hurricane Elena (1985)
  • Hurricane Georges (1998)
  • Tropical Storm Allison (2001)
  • Tropical Storm Isidore (2002) (I think this one may have been a hurricane.)
  • Hurricane Katrina (2005)

Apparently, there were also ones in 1906, 1916, and 1947, before storms were being systematically named.
