Katrina Imagery - 2


A wall of water rushes up the I-10?






No, this is apparently turbulent water lapping at the roadway and splashing and reflecting for the camera. As this snip from a DigitalGlobe image shows, the dry section of I-10 stayed dry.



The people below in the Lakewood and Navarre neighborhoods, of course, did not fare very well. Even the dead could not escape. To the right and left of the interstate in the image above, the densely packed area of white boxes too small to be houses are above ground cemetary plots.

Again, this is raw, unrectified aerial imagery from NOAA. This image correctly rotated, or close to it, and an image and map from Google Earth.
