Hurricane Katrina: Before and After

(Updated) Susan Kitchens has compiled and sent along an animated image (680-KB animated GIF) that shows the New Orleans area before and after Hurricane Katrina passed through; per her suggestion, I’m hosting it on my server.

See previous entries: Hurricane Katrina; Hurricane Katrina: The Aftermath.

Update, 10:30 PM: Boing Boing reports that Google Maps/Earth should have updated imagery within a few days, and links to images of locales both before and after the hurricane hit.

Update, 11:10 PM: I’ve updated the image above to a newer version submitted by Susan; see her comments below.
