High-Res Mississippi River Flood Imagery – GeoEye High Resolution Imagery Featured in Blog Post

Satellite company GeoEye has released two new high-resolution images of the recent flooding along the Mississippi River.

The first image shows flooding at the junction of the Mississippi and Ohio rivers, around Cairo, Illinois on May 8. Move the slider to compare with 2009 aerial imagery from the USDA Farm Service Agency / Google Earth.

On May 10 at 12:10 p.m. local time, the IKONOS satellite took this photo of General DeWitt Spain Airport (5 miles northwest of Memphis). As you can see, the entire airport is submerged. The earlier image, also from GeoEye, was taken in 2006.
