ISS027-E-027026 (12 May 2011)--- An Expedition 27 crew member recorded this image aboard the International Space Station as the orbital outpost was passing over the Mississippi River flood waters from 220 miles above. North is toward the bottom of the image, which was captured using a 400-mm lens. This highly impacted area, centered near 36.6 degrees north latitude and 89.5 degrees west longitude, is just east of New Madrid, Mo. (visible in upper right). Levees appear to be intact here, but there is extensive lowland crop flooding.
