Floods in Europe

In early June 2013, widespread flooding in central Europe has inundated swathes of Austria, Germany, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, killing at least 15 people.

Pre-Flood Soil Moisture:

ESA's SMOS satellite captured the extremely high soil moisture levels monitored previous to the floods on 31 May and 2 June 2013.
