Hurricane Ike Aftermath – Galveston Photos

This past weekend, Hurricane Ike slammed into Texas as a category 2 hurricane. Despite warnings to leave the area or face “certain death,” many did not evacuate from towns and cities in the hurricane’s path. Rescue operations are currently underway.

It will be a few days before we know the cost and extent of damage. Expect to see some incredible imagery from NASA and the USGS in the next few weeks showing drastic changes to the coastline and surrounding terrain from this hurricane’s awesome power. [Update: (09/16/2008) – The USGS has released before and after photos of the Bolivar Peninsula. See them here. ]

Here are some photos from the city of Galveston itself.
