Digital Globe has posted a couple of before and after satellite images of New Orelans showing the extent of flooding and damage. It appears that the darkened areas in the New Orleans image are areas that are underwater. There are also a couple of after images of Biloxi that show the extent of damages.

More imaages are available through NOAA. These seem to focus primarily on the Mississippi coast at present. The destruction of highway bridges is fairly evident and dramatic. Tim Holtt has put otgether a few mouse-over images that flip back and forth between before and after shots, highlighting some of the destruction that has occurred. Via Boing Boing.

On more of a mapping note, a Google mashup exists marking locations and comments from observers. Via Google Maps Mania. This is, of course, only as reliable as the information put into it.
