These Landsat 5 images show how record-breaking rainfall from severe storms on May 1 and 2, 2010 affected the Mississippi River along the state borders of Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Missouri.

The water has receded from the populated areas of Memphis, which is just south of the image, but some families are still living in shelters due to health hazards that resulted from the flooding.
