News Coverage on Google Earth and Hurricane Help

The New York Times has written an article (you can see it at CNET here or at the New York Times) which talks about the way the Google Earth forums has responded with these images and helped hurricane victims and potential victims check on the damaged areas in Google Earth. Here's another story by Forbes. And here's a story by the BBC on the topic.

A woman named Kathryn Cramer has dedicated her time during the past week to helping hurricane victims with information using Google Earth and her blog. She's is mentioned in the above stories. She has posted links to several stories around the world she's heard about on these topics here.

    The NOAA pictures from Pine Street are covered by a cloud at the time the photos were taken. If other pictures of this area become available, I will post about it here.
