If It Were My Home

 

The headlines

tell a lot about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife,

evacuations of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have one very basic question

that you can't easily find an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com lets you do just that.
