MAP: Tropical Storm Hanna (Kelso)

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

[Editor's note: I produced this mashup in real time for The Washington Post a couple weekend's ago when Hurricane Hanna blew into the DC area as a tropical storm. This mashup was the main graphic lead on the homepage for a couple hours. A week later, the Houston Chronicle pulled off a similar exercise for Gustov.]

View and interact with the original on washingtonpost.com.

legendThis mashup tracked flooding, road closures, major power outages, and other storm related events across the Washington, D.C. metro area on Saturday, Sept. 6.
