This map illustrates satellite-detected surface waters over Al Matama and Shendi districts in Sudan as observed from Sentinel-2 image acquired on 04 September 2020. Within the analyzed area of about 1,600 km2, a total of about 100 km2 of lands appear to be flooded. Based on Worldpop population data and the detected surface waters, about 20,000 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.
