Flooding along the Shire River, Mozambique and Malawi

Flooding along the Shire River, Mozambique and Malawi

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.
