Flooding in New Orleans (12)

has come out with a very flashy website called Katrina Flyover
powered by Virtual Earth
. It is essentially a satellite image with street names and features overlayed. there are also little camera icons scattered about the map that if you click you can get before and and oblique aerial photos of that specific area. Very usedul if you live (or lived) in New Orleans and want to find out what state your neighbourhood is in. I tried using the site in Firefox and it partially worked (I couldn't be the side-by-side before and after photos to come up next to each other) and in IE (nothing came up then) so it seems that there are still a few bugs to work out.
