First Post-Hurricane Rita Images

Kathryn Cramer reports that the first post-Hurricane Rita images from the areas hardest hit by the storm have been posted by NOAA. As was the case with Katrina, the interface — starting with a base map index page — is not the most intuitive or user-friendly, and the images are rather large, raw and unprocessed: not for the faint of heart or those needing points of reference. Fortunately they’ve apparently been processed into a Google Earth overlay as well.
