Abbeville, LA  October 25, 2005 -- A Crypt rests against the chain link fence it distored when Hurricane Rita's storm surge washed it from its shallow grave at Banckor Cemetary.  Many crypts lost their headstones, requiring FEMA and the State of Louisiana to ship their coffins to the morgue where pathologists try to identify the bodies.  Photo by Greg Henshall / FEMA
