Some sights we missed

On Monday we had a look at recent imagery in Google Earth. We used the Google Earth plugin to find new imagery. However, either our algorithm is not perfect, or Google has added some more imagery since then because we have found a satellite image that we had missed that shows a major flooding event in Japan.

For more about the event and some photos see this article. Note that a few of the photos are of regions of the river upstream of the area covered in the Google Earth image.

We also came across a mudslide in Myanmar. We could not find a news story about it in particular but there were apparently a lot of mudslides in the region.

And finally there are some images of wild fires in Siberia. They are black and white, but still quite spectacular.

See this article for a NASA image showing the extent of the fires and smoke.
