This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected provinces of Sofala & Tete & Zambezia, 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, possibly covered with standing water, identified with a lower degree of confidence. Additionally, blue areas represent the water levels before the flooding in November 2007. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field.
