See your damaged home from the air NOW

Check out aerial photos of your Southeast Texas neighborhood at the NOAA's Hurricane Rita images.

NOAA has posted more than 1,100 aerial images of the U.S. Gulf Coast areas in the path of Hurricane Rita. Right now, the bulk of Beaumont is not pictured, but many other areas are. [UPDATE: More photos are being added daily, so if you don't see your neighborhood, visit again tomorrow.]

The region was photographed last Sunday, the day after the center of Rita made landfall at about 2:30 a.m. CDT on the extreme southwest coast of Louisiana between Sabine Pass, Texas, and Johnson's Bayou in Louisiana. NOAA used an Emerge/Applanix Digital Sensor System, or DSS, at an altitude of 7,500 feet. The equipment was mounted on NOAA’s Cessna Citation, a twin-engine jet modified for such jobs.

How fine is the picture? Every file is about 50MB and each pixel represents about 1.2 feet.
