The devastating effects both the sub-prime mortgage debacle and the global recession have had on the US economy are somehow alarming. Indeed, 72% of the major metropolitan areas have recently seen an increase in foreclosure volume.


Although some of the worst hit areas in Nevada, California and Florida improved from 2009, the foreclosure rate in these areas remains shockingly high. If not for some foreclosure suspensions due to the robo-signing scandal, these numbers would have been even higher.


For a frightening way to visualize the foreclosure crisis, we're borrowing a Google maps technique described by Barry Ritholtz.
