Flooding in Queensland

Here is a satellite image acquired January 7, 2011, showing the flooding at Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. The flooding from the Fitzroy River can be seen throughout the city and adjacent countryside. You can barely make out one of the runways at the airport as the rest of the airport is shown underwater.

You can use the transparency slider in Google Earth to compare this satellite image to the underlying Google Earth imagery to see which areas would normally be homes and farmland.

The greyish-green areas are underwater.
