The sign says “You can get in the sleigh. Be cautious. Glow wires. See sign behind the sleigh. Merry Christmas!” Larger (thanks Mickey)

Louisiana flooding as seen in Sentinel imagery

As we mentioned in Monday’s post, southern Louisiana is experiencing major flooding. One of the worst affected areas is to the east of Baton Rouge, where the Amite River has burst its banks, flooding several neighbourhoods.

We were able to find a Sentinel image captured on August 14th, 2016 which shows the extent of the flooding at that time.

And zooming in a bit:

To see the image in Google Earth, download this KML file

The original Sentinel image covers a lot more area than we have shown here or included in the KML, but much of the image includes thick cloud cover and we focused on the area with the worst flooding to keep the file size reasonable.
