FEMA Needs to Tell People What It Intends for Their Homes

Via: Boing Boing

Satellite images from Google can help recovery workers determine the conditions of neighborhoods before they get there.
Clearly, some of the houses are a total loss and need to be torn down. On some portions of satellite images houses formerly aligned in neat rows now look like they were casually dropped and haven't been lined up yet. Those homes are gone. There is no question that they need to be replaced. But many others, some in quite deep water, may well be reparable.
