Heavy seasonal rains swelled the Zambezi River in southern Africa in March and April 2008. This image shows how the floods spilled down the Bukalo Channel to swell Lake Liambezi. The Advanced Land Imager on the EO-1 satellite acquired the image on April 19, 2009. While the river system floods seasonally, the floods of 2009 were more extensive than normal, causing thousands of evacuations.
