Flooding along the Richelieu River, Quebec

Flooding along the Richelieu River, Quebec

Flooding along the Richelieu River, Quebec

While flooding affected large parts of the U.S. Midwest and Mississippi Valley, waters rose in other areas, including New England and Quebec. By May 12, 2011, Lake Champlain had reached a new record at Rouses Point, Vermont. The Advanced Hydrological Prediction Service (AHPS) reported that the lake had exceeded its record flood level of 102.1 feet (31.1 meters) set in 1869. On May 10, the lake reached 102.8 feet (31.3 meters), although water levels were slowly declining.
On May 8, 2011, the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured these images of Lake Champlain and Richelieu River, which flows northward from the lake. The top image is natural color and the bottom image is shortwave infrared. In the bottom image, vegetation is bright green, soil is pink, clouds are white, and water is blue. The images are rotated so north is at right.
In these images, the north-flowing Richelieu River has spilled over its banks, inundating croplands bordering the water body. Standing water is also apparent between the river and Lake Champlain. On May 7, the Montreal Gazette reported that the Canadian Armed Forces had dispatched troops to assist with flood-protection efforts southeast of Montreal. Some of the worst flooding on record in the region had forced nearly 1,000 residents from their homes.

Flooding reaches Vicksburg, Mississippi

Flooding reaches Vicksburg, Mississippi Shortwave Infrared

The Mississippi River was rising quickly in Vicksburg, Mississippi, when the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured this image on May 10, 2011. The river was at 52.68 feet at 11:00 a.m., close to the time the image was taken. The top image shows the flooded region in natural color. The muddy Mississippi appears textured in places, a testament to the turbulent flow of the swollen river.
The lower image shows the same scene in a combination of infrared and visible light to provide contrast between muddy brown water and exposed earth. In the lower image, water is dark blue, while bare earth is tan, and plant-covered land is green.
In the days after the image was taken, water levels continued to rise in Vicksburg. By 9 a.m. on May 12, the river had reached 54.51 feet and was still rising. The river reached flood stage at 43 feet, and major flood stage at 50 feet. The record is 56.2 feet, reached on May 4, 1927. The National Weather Service expects water levels to rise to about 57 feet in coming days.
