Real Angel Photos From Hurricane Katrina, Prayers For Sandy

Real Angel Photos From Hurricane Katrina

In 2005 Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf of Mexico and killed 1,836 people. While most people were fighting to get out, I decided to run to it. This is the story of the night we saw the Angels. Those of us that were there could feel electric in the air. We were all given extra energy when we should not have had energy to go on, but it wasn't until the next day that the photos showed us that we were not alone.

The photos are real. The Angels are among us. These picture have never been published as they were thought to be lost on a hard drive many years ago. As I looked though the pictures the entire night came back to me very vividly. I am happy to share this and I hope it inspires. I can't explain these pictures because out of the 40-45 people there, most taking pictures, I was the only one with this result.

There was nothing on the lens and there was no alteration to the pictures. The bubbles or orbs were not noticed until the next day when the photos were reviewed. Everyone checked their cameras and I was the only person to capture that night in this way.

These pictures are my personal property. Please be respectful and backlink if your going to use them in any way.

UPDATE : Hurricane Sandy, I am from Long Island NY and my town has been devistated by Hurricane Sandy. I have added a section at the bottom of this lens for Sandy.

Katrina Was The Worst Civil Engineering Disaster in U.S History - So The Angels Came Sent From Heaven

When the floodbanks or levees failed it caused the worst civil engineering disaster in U.S history. After entering the gulf, Katrina grew from a Category 3 to a Category 5 hurricane within nine hours. This caught many people off guard who decided not to take the evacuation seriously. Towns were completely destroyed.

Homes which have been owned for generations were completely destroyed either when the wind struck or the next day when the levees broke. Katrina was classified as the fourth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record. This record was shortly broken on September 24 , 2005 by Hurricane Rita. Then they were struck by Hurricane Wilma, in October. Wilma was the most intense tropical cyclone ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Being no strangers to Hurricanes many people who had rode them out many times in the past did not believe they were in serious danger. When the storm hit EMS was helpless as it was too dangerous to perform rescues. People were left to drown in their homes or were swept away by the rising flood waters. Most people had to climb onto the roof of their house and were lucky to get out by breaking through.

One family reaching out to the Family Find (Morgue) for help locating their father related the story of how they were on the top of their roof when the water began to cyclone. The woman's Husband was swept into the raging water before her eyes and the eyes of her young son never to be found again.

Hurricane Rita Compounded The Damage Caused By Katrina

Hurricane Rita was the fourth-most intense Atlantic hurricane ever recorded and the most intense tropical cyclone ever observed. Rita made landfall on September 24 between Sabine Pass, Texas, and Johnsons Bayou, Louisiana, as a Category 3 hurricane. She had winds up to 120 mph according to the Tropical Cyclone Report. It continued on through parts of southeast Texas. The storm surge caused massive damage along the Louisiana and Texas coastlines. She killed seven people but, many others died as a result of the evacuation and injuries sustained.

Many families were forced to split up during the evacuation with no means of communication. Houses and whole blocks were destroyed. Little or no cell phone services were available so many families did not know if their loved ones perished during the storms. Houses were picked up and swept to other locations. This made rescue efforts difficult and a system of marking the houses was developed by spray painting directly on the wreckage. This way family members who were able to make their way home had some sort of information. Rescue services such as the SPCA made house by house sweeps looking for pets left behind.

Another problem facing the people who were evacuating was that they were unable to take their pets to the shelters. This was another reason many people stayed behind. Animals who were lucky enough to survive the storm were left on their own to find food and fresh water. In time these animal developed pack mentalities and reverted to their natural instinct to survive. What was once a sweet family pet now ran with others of it's kind, wild and dangerous.

With no means of fresh water, electric or food people took to looting as a matter of survival. Louisiana has a very large population of diabetics and people with high blood pressure. Without means of getting their daily medication many health issues became serious problems as the days went on. Make shift hospitals were set up by the Public Health Service to provide daily medication and health care. These health services were preformed in tents on street corners as many hospitals were destroyed or left without the means of providing services.

The Red Cross was on hand to provide food, fresh water, clothing, and cleaning supplies but it took time to set up and get provisions to the massive amounts of people requiring assistance.

The Family Find Center Was Where Missing Persons Reports Were Taken - Family Find Doubled As The Morgue

The Family Find Center was set up as a way people could find their loved ones. By filling out reports on missing people and leaving messages where you could be found people were able to reunite with loved ones. There were many many happy reunions there but, some were not as happy. The basement acted as a make shift morgue where bodies could be identified. Nurses and Social Workers were on hand to assist when needed.

During my second Voluntary trip down to help I was stationed at the Family Find and because it was so stressful Nurses were only allowed to stay a week. We then rotated to the MASH units.

While we were looking at this pool, I noticed there were fish in it. There were so many fish they formed schools. There were bottom dwelling creatures, sand and shells. Our theory was the ocean water washed into it and the fish came with the water. There was enough nutrients to keep it going. The fish were feeding off the algae and each other.

United Animal Nations, Animal Rescue Set Up To Care For Hundreds Of Abandoned Animals - Here is where the story begins. Actual Photos Of Real Angels

Photo Credit :Property of Author

I was invited to help down in Louisiana by the United Animal Nations and arrived the day after Rita struck. There was a group of 40-50 volunteers that set up a secondary rescue on a farm that donated it's barn and property to the group. Once the animals were found by the primary rescues and brought in for an initial health check the primary rescues needed a place to house and care for them. If it wasn't for the secondary rescues the primary rescues would fill up and manpower would be needed to care for them. The animals that were medically stable and looking for their families would come in daily via large moving vans.

It was not easy work. We had very little power. There was only enough to run a generator for lights in the barn and a few fans in the treatment area. Day time temps reached over 100 and the humidity was over 90%. We had hundreds of animals to care for and this meant very long hours and very little sleep. The volunteers were housed in a local motel at night but there were so many people displaced by the storm that we were only given a few rooms. Most of the time we slept on the floor or where ever your sleeping bag found room. Food was provided by the Red Cross twice a day. The best food actually came from the locals, who sustained little damage and were still able to cook. It was some of the best food I ever tasted and the locals were so appreciative of our efforts. Still with the uncomfortable work conditions we went though the day doing the best we could. Many people who came from all over the United States were not used to this type of heat and humidity and fell sick after a few days. Everyone was very careful to take frequent rest breaks and always carry water.

The Day Before The Angels Came - It felt more like hell than heaven. We were all so tired and spent out last drop of energy.

Most of the volunteers arrived at sunrise. With the temps being cooler we were able to get each animal fed and walked much quicker. We needed to have the animals settled down and resting by the time the temps rose above 100. The heat not only effected the volunteers but, the animals too. Keeping them comfortable and quiet was a difficult. They were stressed and confused. Many showed very visible signs of grief and depression. Heart worm ran rampant though the shelter as many of the animals did not take regular heart worm medication. We rarely saw an animal without it and when an animal is stressed the worms knew how to take advantage of the ideal conditions. Heart worm treatment was difficult under idea conditions and these were not ideal conditions.

It was my second week at the shelter and as usual the volunteers were gathered for a meeting at the end of the day. We were all hot, physically drained and always looked forward to the brief time in the hotel where we were able to relax, sleep and regenerate for the next day. This day was different. One of the primary rescues were closing down and the animals that were housed there were being transferred to our rescue. The trip for the animals was going to be over 100 miles and the volunteer company who owned a van large enough to transport all the animals at one time was due to arrive at 3 am. This meant we were not leaving the rescue but setting up for these new animals. They would all need to be seen by a vet and settled into the kennels. Although this was going to be an exhausting event the volunteers were pumped up and we knew we could do it. Dinner was provided by locals and their kindness, generosity and appreciation was what we needed to go on. We were given a few hours back at the motel to shower and rest but, at 2:00 AM we were headed back to the farm.

The Dog Got The Bed - How can you say no to a beautiful dog like this one that has been though so much

One of the volunteers fell in love with this lab. We all decided that he was too stressed to stay at the shelter at night so we brought him back to the motel with us. You can tell he was very spoiled as he insisted on being the one to sleep in the bed and nobody argued about it. We took our proper place on the floor while he got comfortable. At night he would wait for everyone to fall asleep and one by one he would give us a kiss. Of course he would wake us all up but, you had to love him.

Waiting For The Transport Truck To Arrive - The air was charged. The Angels Sworm

At 2 AM the volunteers began to arrive. Word came that the truck was slightly delayed due to damage on the roads. This was a moving van and not a truck normally used for animal transport so conditions in the back of the truck were going to be rough. We all knew the danger these animals faced with the heat and the stress of the move. All we could do is pray and we did a lot of that. We gathered in prayer circles. It didn't matter what religion you were. We all reached out to God in what ever way we were comfortable. We held hands and closed our eyes tight. Even one animal lost meant a blow to a family looking for it.

During this wait time we were given instructions how to remove the animals from the truck and how we were going to proceed with getting the animals settled. We set up blankets and cages. We got out fresh food and water. Processing paperwork was prepared and by 3:30 we were ready. It was very dark out. We had light from one or two sources but, other than that the only lights were inside the barn.

Real Angels Begin To Appear. We Didn't Know We Were Not Alone

God Sends Us Help

I don't know what it was but, the air was different. I remember there was no wind but, there was a charge and a lot of prayers. We had been working in the heat all days and now it's the middle of the night and nobody seemed to be tired. Something was lifting us up. We couldn't see the angels at this time but, we felt them. We felt safe and ready for the task. We all knew there was going to be no rest for us because as soon as we got the animals settled it would be time to care for the hundreds of other animals in the place.

I have to admit having fallen in love with a tiny little mutt and would have taken him home in a minute. I checked on him often and gave him some kisses. He was old and obviously a lap dog as he managed to climb up on me any chance he got. He took to me as I did to him. I named him Fish Face because his breath would wake the dead. I needed to put this memory here just for me. I miss him. I haven't forgotten him and I pray to the Angels that showed up that night that he found his owners. The rescuers were not allowed to adopt the animals or that dog would have come home with me. On the day I was leaving I broke down. The pressure got to me and I cried and cried with him in my arms. I wanted to stay and I needed to go. Ok, this digression is over. On with the story and let the Angels come.

The Rescue Truck Finally Arrives. The Angel Orbs Appear suddenly. - The Angel Orbs followed the truck. There were hundreds buzzing around the animals.

Finally we were able to see headlights in the distance and we all took our places. We formed lines so that the truck could be emptied rapidly and the animals could being receiving the care they needed. Sandbags were put in place to form a small wall in case any of the animal broke loose. Of course everyone had their cameras out but, there were strict rules about photographing the actual animals. It was a privacy issue. There was a problem with people looking for free fighting dogs and when they came to the shelter to look for their dog or cat they had to give an exact description of the animal before they were allowed to view any of the animals inside. Posting pictures of the animals would give people an unfair advantage of being able to describe what they had seen in pictures first. We were very careful about this and respected the rules. Once the doors of the truck were opened all camera were put away.

I didn't notice anything at first but I was just taking advantage of being able to snap the pictures. I wasn't looking at them as I took them. Once they announced no more photography I placed it into the camera bag and went about the work of the rescue.

The Orbs Appeared With The Truck, But It Was Too Far To Kick Up Dirt - The closer the truck got the more orbs came

It wasn't until the next day that I noticed the orbs that had followed the truck. At first I thought something had gotten onto the lens but, the photos taken before the truck arrived and after the truck left did not have the orbs. The orbs also had depth and seemed to be moving around. The closer the truck got the more orbs appeared.

A second explanation was possibly dust kicked up from the truck. This idea was quickly put aside as the orbs first appeared when the truck was at the farm gate. This was approximatly a half mile from where the barn was. The truck appears closer, but I had the zoom on so I could see it. The truck was way too far to kick up dust at the rescue site.

When I started showing the photos to other volunteers they quickly checked their cameras and nobody but, me captured the orbs.

As the truck gets closer The Orbs Fly Faster - God's Angels Are All Over Us

The orbs could not have been dust on the lens as they moved from shot to shot. If it was on the camera lens they would have stayed stationary and a pattern would have repeated. The orbs appear as if they were moving and different sizes. Some were brighter than others.

We used Sand Bags to help block any loose animals who may have escaped the cages - We felt the energy charge. The Angels were ready to help us and deliver the a

Once the truck was parked and safe the orbs disappeared. What ever was following the truck did their job. They got the truck to us safely and they moved on. Another reason we do not believe it was dust in the air was because the pictures became very clear. Dust would have still lingered in the air at this time. In fact with the amount of orbs that appeared on the camera we would have physically noticed the dirt blown around and someone would have remembered that. Nobody did.

The orbs also suddenly stopped. Had it been dust the orbs would have be seen moving on in the wind, but as fast as they came they left. Once the truck safely parked they all disappeared.

Preparing To Open The Truck Doors - We Didn't Know What To Expect Inside

This photo was taken only a moment after the truck had parked. Notice there are no orbs. Dust would have still been in the air. Also, nobody else photographed the orbs. Someone else would have picked up on it if the air was full of dirt.

We were ready and prepared for opening the doors. The truck needed to move on pretty quickly to get the next group. Once the animal started being removed all cameras were away so I was only able to take pictures of the doors being opened. Unfortunately one of the dogs did escape their crate and bolted from the truck as soon as it was open. This would have been a good time to get a picture but, it was dark and it happened so fast that nobody got a really good description of it. We knew it was medium size, probably a mutt because nobody agreed on the breed.

The dog ran from the truck and into the field where it disappeared from sight. Some volunteers took their cars to look but, at night was when the Venomous snakes would come out and nobody was prepared for that. Everyone was upset and heart broken that we lost one.

The Door Is Opened - Rockinpicks.com photo

As the doors were prepared to open we had a plan and was putting it in place. The Angels brought the animals to us safely and then suddenly flew off. They knew we could handle it from now on.

The Orbs are gone, The Camera Lens Is Clear - Property of Author:

Once the truck was parked the Angels must have felt the situation was handled and left. You can tell the lens is clean and you can see the Angels were no longer aggitated. The air was clear and the workers were ready. God sometimes gives you situations that you can't handle, but he sends help. Sometimes you can't see it when it's there, but they are always watching. They guard the people and the animals.

Looking for the lost dog When The Sun Came Up - Losing One Meant We Lost

The sun came up and the day started. Just because we worked though the night didn't mean the animals didn't need to be walked, cages cleaned and food distributed. We all held out hope that in the light of day someone would spot the dog. No matter how many we saved it still hurt to lose even one. I was walking a dog on one of the paths when I spotted a broken down car. I don't know what exactly made me notice it as it was down a ways from the path and between the car and path was overgrown vegetation. I don't know if it was my own stupidity or the great desire to find the dog, but I decided to brave the vegetation and look at the cars closer. Keep in mind this is Louisiana and the snakes were everywhere. I was entering their territory now that I walked off the path.

As I got closer what ever attracted me there in the first place became clearer. I had to be very quiet as I didn't want to startle what ever was in that car. That's when it became very clear.

Kittens have sharp teeth - We Lost The Dog, But The Kitten Was Saved

It wasn't the dog but, it was a kitten. I reached in and grabbed the baby but, it grabbed me back too. It sunk it's teeth into my hand and didn't let go. I believe I lifted it out of the car with it attached to my hand and ran with it back to the path where I met up with other volunteers. They detached Jaws from my arm and we got back to the shelter with it as soon as we could.

The kitten was dehydrated and starving but, in good condition otherwise. We determined by it's lack of social skills that it was probably a stray who had lost it's mother and the owner of the farm was more than happy to allow us to adopt it out. I would like to report that I took the kitten home and it's among my group now but, another volunteer fell in love with it. She had the kitten shipped to her home and from last report they get along great.

Mother Nature Says Makes goes on - This Photo Was Taken Only A Week After Rita Hit

With death comes life. The scariest sound we heard in the hardest hit areas was silence. There was no background noise anywhere. There were no crickets, frogs or sounds of birds. It was as if life just stopped when the hurricane hit, but it didn't take long to start to come back.

Hurricane Sandy

Our hearts and prayers are going out to everyone one the east coast effected by Hurricane Sandy. My old town has been devastated. There is an awful similarity seeing the effects and knowing what happened in NOLA. While today people just want to get their power back the flooding creates long term problems once the mold and mildew sets in.

In my town of Merrick, there are reports of boats in trees and water today above light switches.

Living Through A Hurricane

Photo Credit Marissa Fabio

I have been though more hurricanes than I can to even think about but, Sandy was the worst. I was not there for Sandy but, my old home sustained a lot of damage. When a hurricane was coming my family always did the same thing.

1. We packed a weeks worth of clothing plus one suitcase of photos and papers, I didn't understand that when I was young but I do now. We then put what ever old photos we had left in the house into plastic bags and sealed them tight.

2. We moved all furniture from the first floor to the second and third floor. If it could be moved, we moved it.

3. We taped our windows but in reality we should have boarded them up.

4. Meanwhile we were doing this my mother went on a shopping hunt for candles and food supplies. We got lots of junk food. Canned foods were ok as we have a portable little stove thing

5. The car got loaded down with pillows, blankets and my mother's favorite linen. We then went inland to friends and family. Where we ended up for the storm varied with invitation but, it wasn't hard finding a relative to take us in for the night. We never stayed and we always looked at it as an adventure. It's one night away and if you are staying away more than one night there would have been a bigger problem if you stayed.

      A wonderful story and wonderful pictures. I just had to read this lens once I realized it was about Katrina and the aftermath of her stormy visit. I lived through Katrina and Rita both. In fact, Katrina blew over a willow tree in my backyard so that it was leaning on the roof of an old pump shed. When Rita came through she blew the willow tree back upright again! Go figure. Thank you for coming down here and helping out.

      Wow. I suspect that animals are often the forgotten victims of natural disasters, and I never knew about all the care that goes into finding and boarding them, as well as what needs to be done to reunite them with their proper families and not with people taking advantage of the disaster. This lens brought me to tears more than once. I'm on the fence about what orbs are, but I admit that it's pretty amazing that they only showed up around the truck as it arrived.
