The Grand Casino is no more.

GULFPORT, MS (AP): The Grand Casino has gone out with a bang.
A demolition crew this morning blew up a section of the barge that has been blocking US Highway 90 in Gulfport, Mississippi, ever since Hurricane Katrina heaved it ashore.
Three explosions in rapid succession brought down the five-story structure in a demolition overseen by the state Transportation Department.
The agency says the blast is part of its plan for reopening the road through Mississippi in 90 days.
