Caption: Monsoon floods. False-colour satellite image of floods caused by monsoon rains in Bangladesh (centre left) and India (far left, centre right). Rivers have burst their banks and the terrain surrounding the Ganges River (centre left) and Brahmaputra River (upper right) is waterlogged. Standing water is visible, particularly in Dhaka (centre), the capital city of Bangladesh. Although flooding during the monsoon season is normal, many parts of India, Bangladesh and Nepal are being flooded more severely than usual. Image taken on 20 October 2004 at 04:40 GMT by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA's Terra satellite.
