Biloxi Casinos

Casino row on US 90 in Biloxi, Mississippi has taken a beating.

The CEO of Treasure Bay Casino says it's a "total loss." He says it will cost more than 100 (M) million dollars to replace it.

At least two of the floating casinos were washed over US 90, which is a major four-lane street that follows the beach. An AP reporter says the casinos' barges are in tatters, adding, "you can see inside them."

There's a ditch on US 90 that's filled with water and slot machines.

As for hotels nearby, they were damaged but not destroyed.

The area is being plagued by looting. The owner of the Super Eight motel in Biloxi says "People are just casually walking in and filling up garbage bags and walking off like they're Santa Claus."
