New Orleans after Katrina

 (JPG) New Orleans after Katrina (198,438 bytes) ( 821 x 1,200 )
Seventeen days after Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans, much of the city is still under water. In this pair of ASTER images the affected areas can clearly be seen. The top image mosaic was acquired in April and September 2000, and the bottom image was acquired September 13, 2005. The flooded parts of the city appear dark blue, such as the golf course in the northeast corner, where there is standing water. Areas that have dried out appear light blue gray, such as the city park in the left middle. On the left side of the image, the failed 17th street canal marks a sharp boundary between flooded city to the east, and dry land to the west. The images cover an area of 10.4 x 7.1 km and are centered near 30 degrees north, 90.1 degrees west.
