The local Fort Worth office of the National Weather Service forwarded the following to us, and asked us to pass it along to our viewers.

***View Aerial Photos of Post-Ike Damage Along Texas Coastline***

Now available on NOAA.gov is a collection of aerial photos of the Texas coastline showing the damage caused by Hurricane Ike. This imagery was acquired by NOAA’s Remote Sensing Division to support NOAA’s national security and emergency response activities. More than 4,000 images from Ike have been posted with others added daily to the public Web site as they become available after each flight.

These photos are in the public domain and may be reproduced. Please credit NOAA.

This main site (direct link: < http://ngs.woc.noaa.gov/eri_page/ ) provides aerial damage assessment photos for not only Hurricane Ike but also of Hurricane Gustav and a selection of major hurricanes since 2003. The photos are useful to the public who can sometimes get a close up look at their own property if it is the flight path.
