In January 2015, several bouts of heavy rain triggered widespread flooding in southern Africa. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on the EO-1 satellite captured this image of flooding along the Shire River in Malawi and Mozambique on January 26, 2015. See this gallery for more satellite imagery of flooding in southern Africa.
