Flooding in Dominican Republic (423,578 bytes) ( 2,000 x 1,050 )
Ten days of heavy rains caused flooding and landslides in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. At least 500 people were killed during some of the deadliest floods in decades. These 2 ASTER images cover an area of 15 x 16.5 km centered on the town of Jimani, Dominican Republic. The left image was acquired July 4, 2000, and the right image May 30, 2004, just after the period of torrential rains. An in-depth article appears on NASA's Earth Observatory web site, describing use of these data, in conjunction with other NASA data, to study the massive flooding. This image is located at 18.5 degrees north latitude and 71.8 degrees west longitude.
