This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected districts of Namacurra & Maganja da Costa, Zambezia Province, Mozambique. Flooded areas have been sorted into 2 classes: Red areas represent standing flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence. Blue areas represent pre-flood water levels (mostly wetlands) identified from 3 December 2007. Estimates for flooded areas per district have been calculated in km2. Flood analysis was made using MODIS Terra & Aqua data recorded 16 January 2008. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field.
