Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows historically high water levels along the Missouri River.

Across the Central United States, at least 200 gauges measured some level of flooding on March 23, 2019.

The widespread floodwaters, which were ultimately triggered by a late-winter bomb cyclone, are not expected to recede for weeks.

This image was captured on March 21, 2019 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite.
