Australia is once again bracing for heavy floods affecting areas of Western Queensland and Northern New South Wales and many towns have been hit hard. The following satellites images from the NASA satellite Terra and Aqua (http://lance.nasa.gov/imagery/rapid-response/) acquired from Saturday 4th show the extent of the food ( beige-brown area) over the Gwydir Highway, between Moree and Collarenebri as well as St-George and surrounding areas. The time-series shows the progression of  the flood water going South.

AEROmetrex is currently conducting high-resolution aerial survey of the area. Check out how aerial photogrammetric surveys can support disaster and emergency management in case of floods.
