Satellite Imagery

Here's a link to a satellite photo that Harvey's blogless niece Sarah dug up for him.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Associated Press is offering Internet access to a satellite image that covers most of New Orleans, detailed enough that viewers can zoom in to check on particular neighborhoods and streets.

The image's resolution is high, at 2.4 meters per pixel. It is posted in a format that allows quick viewing of any area a user zooms in on. Users can quickly see what areas are under water and what structures are still standing.

The initial image was taken Wednesday and supplied by the company DigitalGlobe. AP will offer updated satellite images as they become available. The image is available at:

It helps give you an idea of the utter devastation that has occurred in New Orleans.
