Satellite Images: Gustav vs. Katrina

August 31, 2008

Even though Gustav doesn’t appear to be quite as scary from space, the weather guys are predicting a similar strength and location to what happened 3 years ago (almost exactly 3 years, actually).  I tried to find two images for comparison that represented the same vantage point.

Gustav:

Maybe it isn’t the size that makes Katrina look worse, rather that tightly defined eye wall.  I hope everyone makes it out of there OK.

  1. I just watched the evacuation clips of NOLA. Wouldn’t you know it, a hurricane is bearing down on them, and the TSA is still making people take off shoes and put items in funny little trays. Damn it people this is an emergency. People are trying to get out not invade in! We are now truly hostages to our government!


  2. From this Democrat – Our prays are with everyone. Stay safe. Stay safe Niece and family we know you are on the road to Georgia from New Orleans!

    Isaiah 40:31
    “But they that wait upon the LORD
    shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings as EAGLES
    they shall run, and not be weary;
    and they shall walk, and not faint”
