This map illustrates satellite-detected surface waters over Kachin, Shan (North) State and Sagaing, Mandalay, Magway Region of Myanmar as observed from a Terra(MODIS) image acquired on 25 July 2020 due to the current monsoon rains. Within the analyzed area of about 140,000 km2, a total of about 3,800 km2 of lands appear to be flooded. Based on Worldpop population data and the detected surface waters, about 920,000 people are potentially exposed or living close to flooded areas. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR -UNOSAT.
The flood extent analysis was performed by Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (GISTDA), Thailand
