English: Aerial view, extreme long shot, looking down as the Limpopo River winds its way through Southern MOZAMBIQUE, where it recently crested its banks and sent floodwaters rushing through towns and farmland, forcing people from their homes and wreaking havoc with the countries infrastructure. Even though waters have receded over the past week, heavy rains seen in the distance, continue to threaten the region with more flooding. C-130 aircraft (not shown), assigned to the 37th Airlift Squadron at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, fly daily Keen Sage aerial surveillance missions over MOZAMBIQUE to help find stranded flood victims and survey flood levels and damage caused by the flooding in Southern Africa. The 37th Airlift Squadron C-130 aircraft, are deployed to Hoedspruit Air Force Base, South Africa, as part of the United States Operation Atlas Response, humanitarian relief efforts.
