Ike's impact seen from today's satellite

I came across an interesting discovery while looking at the RipCharts True Color satellite imagery this afternoon. I noticed this darker brown area along the coast caused (presumably) by Ike's storm surge. Its interesting to see that it stretches pretty far into Louisiana too.

Storm surge south of Houma (another 50mi or so east of the picture) went over the 10' levees. LOTS of homes/camps flooded with mucky surge fluid. This area was Gustov's landing zone to which Ike induced even more severe damage than Gustov's direct hit the week before.

Storm surge doesn't tolerate much in it's way.
