hurricane ike, 7 months later

Today is the start of the hurricane season. There is a good NPR story on this here
In September 2008, Hurricane Ike came through southern Texas and continued on up through the Midwest and into Canada. Remember that? The areal image above was taken soon after by NOAA to survey the damage.

Yesterday, this is what the area looks like. New construction (!) is going on. You can see the new houses in the background in this image.

There is lots of clean-up still going on.
