This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected districts in central Mozambique. Flooded areas have been sorted into 3 classes: Red areas represent standing flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence. Yellow areas represent flood-affected areas, probably covered with standing water, identified with a lower degree of confidence. Blue areas represent pre-flood water levels identified from 20 November 2007. Estimates for flooded areas per district have been calculated in km2, represent approximate values only, and indicate a increase in flood water from 4 to 13 January. Flood analysis was made using MODIS Terra & Aqua data recorded 4-13 January 2008. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field.
