Australia – February 4th, 2013

While parts of Queensland were affected by flooding in early February, other parts, like this area south and southwest of Broad Sound (the sediment-filled bay in the upper right quadrant), were affected by wildfires due to a long period of drought, soaring temperatures and winds. The largest fire is visible in the lower left quadrant.
