Ok, CSB time.  I attended a conference in Gulfport, Mississippi just before the hurricane onslaughts of 2004 and '05.  Hotel for guests was connected with a walkway across US 90 to a casino.  Which had been built out over the water on floatation devices that were supposedly engineered to rise up, then settle the casino safely back down with any storm surge.

Later, someone sent me a pic of the casino crashed upside down in the middle of US 90.  Presumably, the remains of the hotel were somewhere north of I-10.
