In the spring and summer of 2011, the Missouri River experienced extreme flooding. The Landsat images above show Omaha, Nebraska, during the flooding on June 6, 2011, and one year later on June 8, 2012. In these images, the Missouri River is blue and meanders north to south through Omaha. Warm dry weather this year has allowed the river to return to its banks; however, clean-up continues on the highways and areas along the entire river.
