More Katrina Links

Filed under: General — Cory @ 1:55 am

I have been coming across links to interesting pages related to Katrina and it’s aftermath.

First, Google Earth has a page up with satellite images. Apparently the real Google Earth application can show even more. Update: Google Maps now has a link on it’s home page pointing to a special New Orleans page with Katrina damage, taken on Wed, August 31st.

Wikipedia News has a list of colleges and universities that are offering admission to students who would have been attending schools in New Orleans where the fall semester has been cancelled, such as Tulane. Tulane is just now getting a website back up and running, and they appear to have a blog (running WordPress incidentally) where updates will be posted. Being a DNS geek, I noticed that Yahoo is now hosting nameservice for Tulane, and it looks like their website is hosted there as well, or at least at Inktomi. I wonder if their datacenter on campus took any damage.

I have been regularly reading Michael Barnett‘s blog where he has been posting updates from the DirectNIC office in downtown New Orleans. Amazing stories, although his commentary is sometimes a little over the top.

For those interested in this sort of thing, the New Orleans police scanners are available via this stream.
