Caption: New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina made landfall on August 29th, 2005. This image, showing the flooded city (dark areas) was acquired on September 6, 2005. Hurricane Katrina left a trail of destruction on the Gulf of Mexico coast of the USA, notably in New Orleans. There, the high winds, rain and storm surge caused the low-lying city's flood defences to fail. Around 80% of New Orleans was flooded, with thousands killed. The evacuation of all the city's 1.3 million residents was ordered on September 8th. The Advanced Land Imager on NASA's EO-1 satellite acquired this detailed image of the flooded city.
