The Queensland floods from space


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features a view of Queensland from space just a few days after intense rainfall and flooding transformed the region earlier this year.

Many areas in Queensland received more than their annual rainfall in less than a week.

The flooding caused millions of dollars in damages, including destroyed homes and the loss of nearly 500,000 cattle.

Sediment can be seen pouring into the Coral Sea, close to the Great Barrier Reef lagoon.
