There is an article over at MaisonBisson that is supposedly an eyewitness account of the Katrina rescue effort from the viewpoint of someone that had been at a conference in New Orleans when the Hurricane hit. A Flickr member stated:
Even if only half of what is written is true, it would be too horrible to imagine, yet i believe all of it is.
Heck, if only a quarter of what is written is true…it is a sad account of our nation’s search/rescue during a massive disaster.
UPDATE: My Friend Jon over at LifeAfterCoffee is linking to an NOAA article with some arial photos of the Katrina aftermath. Its amazing how vulnerable and exposed we are during disasters such as this.
For those of you that are following Hurricane Katrina problems in New Orleans, you may be interested in this… Google has taken satellite imagery of New Orleans (imagery taken August 31st). To get to this information, go to Google Maps and do a search for New Orleans. Drag and zoom to the area and a Red “Katrina” button will appear at the top right of the map.
For more information on the devastating Hurricane Katrina, head on over to Wikipedia. For more information on Google Maps, I’d suggest heading over to MaisonBisson.com and NoSheep!. Oh, and google also did some satellite imagery of the Moon Landing Site. Check out NoSheep! for more information on that. (note, with google moon, zoom all the way in)
