(WSPA/WFLA) – In the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released aerial photos showing the destruction along the Florida coast.
You can use NOAA’s interactive map to see the photos of the damage and even compare the pictures to previous satellite photos showing the area before the storm.
This also allows people who live in the area and have evacuated to see damage to their home or street.
NOAA aircraft took aerial photos of the damage in storm-stricken areas.
Here’s how to look up an address using the tool:
- Go to https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/michael/index.html
- Zoom into the area you would like to see
- Type in an address to zoom in more to see a street
- If you can’t find the specific location (It can be hard to recognize locations looking down on them), try finding the location first on Google maps, and then use Google maps as a reference when zooming in on locations in the NOAA tool.
- If you want more information about the photos click here to see “Tips for navigating the Emergency Response Imagery Viewer”
- If your neighborhood is not shown, keep checking back to this NOAA website. More storm-stricken areas will likely be added.
