Pléiades Satellite Image - Dresden, Germany

This Pléiades image recorded on 7 June 2013 shows the severe flooding of the German city Dresden. Following several days of unseasonal rain fall the water level of the river Elbe rose to almost 9 meters thus inching very close to the record high of 9.4m during the floods in 2002 (normal water level in summer is 1.8m). About 15,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in the state of Saxony.
