Aftermath of Hurricane Ike along Texas Coast

 (JPG) Aftermath of Hurricane Ike along Texas Coast ( 4,419,513 bytes) ( 6,630 x 5,000 )
Three weeks after Hurricane Ike came ashore near Galveston, TX, residents returned to find their houses in ruins. From the coast to over 15 km inland, salt water saturated the soil as a result of the 7m storm surge pushed ashore by the force of the hurricane. The right image was acquired on September 28; vegetation is displayed in red, and inundated areas are in blue-green. Within the inundated area are several small ‘«£islands‘«ō of high ground where salt domes raised the level of the land. The left image was acquired August, 2006. The images cover an area of 49.5 x 37 km, and are located near 29.8 degrees north latitude, 94.4 degrees west longitude.
