October 30, 2013 - Flooding in Cambodia
Heavy seasonal rains in October 2013 were followed by Typhoon Nari, creating substantial flooding along the Mekong and Tonlé Sap Rivers in Cambodia. The flood affected over a half million people and is believed to have destroyed approximately 750,000 acres of rice fields. The Landsat 8 images above show the drastic landscape change before and during the flooding. For more information, see the Image of the Week Gallery.
