Mississippi flood, USA
During the last week of December 2015, a large low-pressure system slowly moved eastward over the United States, causing heavy precipitation over the Mid-West. Over December 2015, some locations received more than 6 times the normal precipitation amount, which eventually resulted in a record-breaking flooding of the Mississippi River and its tributaries. The images show the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio River on 13 November 2015 (left) and 2 January 2016 (right). The flood impact is well visible, especially downstream of the confluence point.
