Satellite Imagery Shows Damage in Yellowstone in Wake of Historic Flooding

Satellite images released by Maxar Technologies on Thursday, June 16, show damage to areas of Yellowstone National Park after historic flooding triggered mudslides and landslides on June 13.

Images by Maxar Technologies, who said they were collected on June 15, represent the moments before and after several areas of the park and surrounding area were heavily damaged. Widespread flooding can be seen on the Gardner and Yellowstone rivers, at the north entrance to the park, and on Highway 89 between Mammoth, Wyoming, and Gardiner, Montana.

On Wednesday, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon said he planned to issue an emergency declaration in response to the flooding at the park and surrounding areas. Credit: Maxar Technologies via Storyful
