Aerial Photos of New Orleans Postal Facilities
Utilizing Google Maps PostalMag.com has been able to obtain high resolution aerial photos of two post offices in New Orleans (below). The Central Carrier Station at 1300 Florida Avenue (first photo below) is surrounded by water. In the parking lots, postal vehicles sit in a sea of water. The area surrounding the Chef Menteur Station at 5919 Chef Menteur Highway (second photo) appears to be not flooded, but there are only five postal vehicles in the parking lot (we hope that's normal).

When available, Google Maps is providing aerial photos taken after Hurricane Katrina that show the extent of flooding in the New Orleans area. (Below, we have provided links to Google satellite images of areas that have New Orleans postal facilities). To use this feature yourself, go to http://maps.google.com and enter the address of the location you wish to view. You can view by Map, Satellite, Hybrid (combination), or Katrina mode (not available where not applicable).
