USA – March 27th, 2013

Although moderate to heavy rains over the last week greatly improved the drought conditions in the southeastern USA, particularly across Georgia, most of Alabama and South Carolina, and northern and central Florida, many fires can still be seen burning in the region. Here, multiple plumes of smoke blow southwards towards the Gulf of Mexico. Also visible at the lower left is the Mississippi River Delta. Cooling temperatures and more rain are expected to slow the spread of the fires over the weekend.
