Map the Flood


Storm That Drowned a City homepage

 

Most people are shocked at just how extensive the Katrina flooding of New Orleans was. Below, zoom in on your part of the U.S. to see how much of your area would have flooded if it had a similar elevation. Note that the blue outline only shows flooding in New Orleans proper; additional flooding occurred in certain suburbs.

To see the flood extent in your area, click and drag on the map until your area is in the center of the image. Use the scale on the left side of the map to zoom in. The blue flood outline will remain in the center of the image.
