Google Earth community members have created more than 100 overlays in the last 24 hours that tell the story of Hurricane Katrina's effect. The overlays drape on top of existing satellite images, and NOAA has been posting these flyovers so people can actually see the incredible devastation.
Mendez and Stoll help users with a set of instructions as follows:
"If you have information about the status of an area that is not yet on the map, please contribute by following the instructions below so that others may get that much needed information.
Mendez writes: "I want to thank Greg Stoll for putting this together really quickly for me. You can check out his site at www.gregstoll.com. Thanks to WebGeist for the free hosting during this time of need."
