While I've been searching for real-time weather and imagery KMLs I've also generated some output of the results I've had using Google Earth. These images are now featured at my photoblog at http://www.flickr.com/photos/gisuser/. Also of interest is the real-time stream flow data and gauge readings available from the USGS - these data are useful for tracking hurricane flooding. You can find out about it here http://www.gisuser.com/content/view/6733/. Those looking to download Google Earth KMLs of HNC (national hurricane center) data can find listings in our downloads section at GISuser.com. Finally, best wishes to all of our friends and associates in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and anywhere else that may be affected by Katrina.
