Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Ishim River flooding a small town in Russia.

This past May, the Ishim River overflowed after large amounts of snowmelt caused a dam to collapse. The flooding affected thousands of properties in the Tyumen area, according to ReliefWeb.

This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Terra satellite.
