Historic Natural Disasters

Then & Now Images of Natural Disasters

The Mapping History Contest

Help us locate these images for a chance to win a $100 Amazon.com gift code!

We want to map as many images as possible. But, there are a ton of great images out there, and some image locations are hard to find, while others we just don't have time to find. That is where we hope you can help!

Take a look at the images posted in this section. All you need to do is search Google Maps to find a potential, current-day location to match the historical image. The images are labeled by city, and state, to give you a head start on your search. All plausible submissions will be eligible for the gift code drawing.

To submit an image location:

  1. Go to Google Maps: http://maps.google.com/
  2. Use Google Maps to find the location you believe matches the original picture
  3. Click the link icon (see below) and copy-and-paste the link into an email to info@historicalnaturaldisasters.com. In the subject line of the email please include the "Image Number" associated with the image on our website.

  4. The link icon and link in Google Maps:


When the contest is over, a submission will be drawn at random, and that person will receive a $100 Amazon.com gift code provided by historicnaturaldisasters.com and insurancetown.com.
