One again, we see the internet is an unbelievable resource whenever these disasters — both manmade or Acts of God — strike. In particular, the images, maps, satellite views and photojournalism are truly astonishing.
Here’s an assortment of perspectives from the media and individual bloggers:
• Americares (known as the most efficient relief charity in the U.S.)
Assistance for Victims
• I’m Okay
• Missing Persons Database (NOLA)
(via WSJ’s Medical Checklist for Disasters)
• Hurricane Katrina Aftermath (orbimage)
Maps and Graphics
• Levee Systems of New Orleans (NYT)
Also, watch these 2 satellite photo providers for their upcoming Katrina coverage:
Historical Media Coverage (Pre-Katrina)
• Gone with the Water (Nat’l Georgraphic, October 2004)
• NEW ORLEANS IS SINKING (September 11, 2001)
• Katrina News Tracker (free WSJ — no subsciption required)
• The Wall Street Journal (subsciption required)
• The "city" of Louisiana (Keith Olbermann)
• FEMA Hurricane Katrina Photo Gallery (talk about ironic juxstaposition!)
I’ll update this page periodically . . .
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
