Yes, that's the casino spot on. But where did the bloody thing go? http://www.googleearthhacks.com/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=7069#

There's that strip of Highway 10 and then that curved parking lot and some piers. I looked all up and down the coast for those features and couldn't find them. It would be interesting, if we knew the current position, to do an overlay with the pix of this.

sorry, but the first file (grand casino) must be wrong. Did the hurricane put some green strips in the middle of the road, or is this the wrong placemark. And you can clearly see on the left picture, thatthere is a high building, a bridge over the street to another 3-store-high building with blue roof. I don't find this at the place, you bookmarked!?
Any explanation?

I looked really hard and I have to say, I cant really figure out what happened.
All of those pictures are of the Grand Casino. It appears to me that the actual Barge is on shore somewhere other than near the main building.

When looking at the barge photo it looked to me like it was just pushed straight into the shore, destroying the entrance building and then landing accross the street. Look at the location where the foundation should be for the entrance building both in my attached photo and in the SAT photo.

If you look at the photo from the Left side of the casino you can see that the Main buildings are in the background. So this Barge was raised blown the the left and then set down on shore.

Make sense?

I will look into it more.

Take a look at this overlay - there you can see the casino building in the west. You see the casino boad in the back and the road with green in the middle...

I hope it works, otherwise you can find the file here:

I dont know if it is flaw in Google Earth or what - but I maxed out my web hosting monthly download limit, and now whenever this .kmz file tries to load the pictures I have linked to my web folder I get an annoying error.
I hope that nobody else is getting an error related to this .kmz file.
I had no idea that I would cause this problem if in fact others have the same problem.

I cannot afford more web hosting so these links are dead.

Sorry to all.
