Flooding and Train Derailment in Northwest Iowa

Detailed Description

The Rock River flooded parts of northwest Iowa after several days of heavy rainfall in June 2018. A train carrying crude oil derailed over a flooded bridge south of Doon on June 22, prompting evacuations of nearby homes. Landsat 8 images from June 1 and June 24 show the extent of the flooding.
