The aftermath of Hurricane Ike

Description: Three days after Hurricane Ike slammed into Galveston, Texas as a Category 2 hurricane, severe flooding has challenged Gulf Coast residents from Texas to Louisiana. A team at Google has been gathering information we hope will be useful to residents of the affected regions and the relief agencies working to help them.

Imagery from NOAA

After Hurricane Ike came ashore in the wee hours Saturday morning and as the weather cleared, NOAA's Remote Sensing Division began flying rapid response aerial reconnaissance missions of the Texas and Louisiana Gulf region. This aerial imagery is intended to provide emergency managers with a broad view of damage and residual flooding, so that they can prioritize and direct response to aid those in greatest need in the affected regions. It is also of potential use to those who have been evacuated from these regions or may have loved ones impacted by the storms. The NOAA team has published the data they have collected so far on their official Hurricane Ike response page, and members of the Google Earth team have processed it into a KML image overlay for easy access by anyone.
