SLIDESHOW: Before and after images show inundated areas
SOUTH LOUISIANA - Images from the National Geodetic Survey are being used to help assess the damage after historic flooding came to southern Louisiana last weekend.
On Aug. 14, NGS started collecting aerial images in specific areas that have already been identified by FEMA and the National Weather Service.

NGS says the aerial images were captured by a team of NOAA aviators using specialized remote-sensing cameras aboard NOAA's King Air aircraft flying above the areas at altitudes ranging from 2000 to 3000 feet.
