Google’s imagery is used by a variety of organizations to assist in disaster recovery, so they strive to get it posted as quickly as possible. In the recent past, Google has responded with imagery for events such as the flooding in Pakistan, the Haiti earthquake, the Gulf oil spill and the earthquake in Chile.
The San Bruno imagery isn’t yet available in Google’s base layer, but you can view it by using this KML file. For more information, you can read more on the Google Lat Long Blog.
