As residents and emergency responders in eastern Libya continued Wednesday to search storm debris for the bodies of missing people, satellite images released in the aftermath of this week's devastating floods show the vast scope of the damage to Derna, a port city with a population of about 100,000.

Mediterranean Storm Daniel caused flooding across a wide section of northern Libya over the weekend, with the most catastrophic impacts seen in Derna. The city is bisected by a river, the Wadi Derna, which runs from the mountains down toward the city.
