This map presents potential flood water/flood-affected areas within central Allahwala Town, in Karachi East following Cyclone Phet on 6 June 2010. This analysis is based on an analysis of post-disaster satellite imagery collected by SPOT-4 on 9 June and ALOS PRISM on 11 June 2010, and pre-crisis PRISM data collected on 8 June 2009. This is a preliminary analysis with a moderate to high degree of uncertainly because of the complex signature of standing water bodies within a dense urban environment. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Maps scale for A3: 1:17,500; Projection :UTM Zone 42N; Datum : WGS-84.
