Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at severe flooding this week in eastern Africa.

Heavy April rains continued into May, causing flooding of the Jubba and Shebelle rivers which displaced over 120,000 people from their homes.

This false-color image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
