New Orleans Satellite Maps

Google has an updated New Orleans satellite view via Google Maps Katrina. It is interesting to compare the damage to the hybrid map view.

While much of the attention has been focused on New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina also badly damaged Biloxi and other parts of the Gulf Coast. Here's some "before and after" satellite images.

    "NASA science instruments and Earth-orbiting satellites are providing detailed insight about the environmental impact caused by Hurricane Katrina. Images and data are helping characterize the extent of flooding; damage to homes, businesses and infrastructure; and potential hazards caused by the storm and its aftermath.

    NASA, along with academic institutions and partner agencies, is working to ensure the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have the best available information to aid in responding to this catastrophic event."
