Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic church remains damaged in Johnson's Bayou, La. on Thursday, Oct. 27, 2005. The community is badly damaged, but Hurricane Rita's storm surge did not appear to leave as much as destruction as surrounding communities.
A classroom remains filled with debris at Johnson Bayou School in Johnson's Bayou. The walls of the school were rammed down and the classrooms filled with ocean water and debris.
