NOAA is doing overflights of all the coasts impacted by Hurricane Irma. Images are updated daily so you can compare the before and the after. This is very useful for evacuees who are wondering about their homes and neighborhoods. Note the map has layers that you can toggle on and off, and you can move it and zoom in. This is something NOAA does after strong storms and hurricanes on our coasts.
