Flooding in Taiwan

Portions of Landsat 7 scenes, acquired on May 31 and September 20, 2009, show the impact of Typhoon Parma on the lowlands in the Yilan City region of Taiwan. In the May 31 image cultivated fields and forested areas are represented by green, urban areas by light tones. In the September 20 image the coastal regions are flooded and the blue tones represent wet and inundated fields. The heavy rains from the typhoon affected the Yilan province and the surrounding townships of Sansing, Wujie, Dongshan, Jhuangwei, Datong, Toucheng, and Luodong, forcing thousands of residents to evacuate.
