landsat of new orleans post-katrina

I suspect we’ll be seeing some higher-resolution images from GlobeXplorer and Space Imaging in the next few days, and of course, there are plenty of images from the ground that reinforce how immense the damage is.


Here are some high-resolution ones of the coastline:
