NASA has published an image of historic flooding in Russia’s Far East obtained from Terra satellite using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on August 21, 2013.

      The picture shows the consequences of the heavy rainfall in early August and is compared with a similar image taken in August 21, 2008 during a drier season.

      The flooding in the Amur and Khabarovsk Region have led to evacuations, swamping vast areas of farmland and roads.

      The military are assisting emergency crews working across the large area.
