Description

Heavy rains following Tropical Cyclone Debbie have caused rivers in eastern Australia to breach their banks, inundating roads and homes.

The Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite mission captured these images of an area about 120 km northwest of Rockhampton, near the Junee State Forest.

Here we see sediment-filled floodwaters from the Mackenzie and surrounding rivers inundating the land on 1 April. By 11 April, the waters appear to have receded.
