A Little More Perspective

The Boston Globe has updated the tool I mentioned yesterday to include the area flooded by Hurricane Katrina. Check out the New Orleans flood superimposed on the Boston area. The flood damage runs from the North End to Framingham. All of Allston and Brighton would be underwater, the same with most of Newton, Wellesley and all of Cambridge east of Harvard Square. If you had any doubts about the scope of this disaster before, this should put it in a perspective we can appreciate here in Boston.
