It's amazing how much damage Bayou La Batre received, considering that Mobile itself didn't have much major damage.

Bayou La Batre city officials plan to use $17.6 million in federal funds to build two new neighborhoods, a total of 120 affordable modular homes. The neighborhoods are intended to get Hurricane Katrina victims to move away from their old, flood-prone neighborhoods, and to attract former and new residents. Bayou La Batre lost a third of its population after Hurricane Katrina. The city plans to offer special financing to prospective low income owners and renters, some of whom will be eligible for up to two years rent-free.

Horizon Shipbuilding in Bayou La Batre has a new $80 million contract to build up to nine 140-foot tugboats, designed to push up to a dozen barges of refined oil products through the inland river system. Horizon has grown from fewer than 50 workers to 150 workers since Hurricane Katrina hit, and will add about another 120 jobs for the barge contract.

Nice economic boost for Bayou La Batre!
