Superdome
New Orleans
Pre- and Post-Hurricane Katrina

The Superdome, which was holding at least 10,000 evacuees, was surrounded by water on Tuesday, 30 August 2005. Evacuees sat tight in the massive sports arena, which itself bore Katrina's scars after having much of its outer dome ripped off the day prior. Evacuation plans called for the evacuees to later be evacuated via bus to the Houston Astrodome. The imagery below was collected by the ORBIMAGE ORBVIEW-3 satellite on 17 September 2004 and on 30 August 2005.
