New Orleans by satellite

Google Maps has just updated their satellite imagery of New Orleans to include pre- and post-Hurricane Katrina images. While, like everyone else, I have seen countless images of the devastation in the news, and read about how many people have been affected, I hadn’t really comprehended the magnitude of the devastation until I saw these images.

The images can be accessed here. You can switch between the pre- and post-Katrina images using the “Satellite” and “Katrina” buttons at the top-right of the page.
