Analysis Findings: This is the fourth situational update on the status of flood waters advancing on the city of Shahdadkot, based on satellite data recorded today at 08:30 UTC (28 August 2010). Flood waters have continued to advance 2.5km eastward towards Shahdadkot over last 24 hours constituting now an imminent threat that the town could be flooded within the next 24-48 hours. Immediately north of Shahdadkot, the reported makeshift embankment continues to hold. To the south-east of Shahdadkot, there are indications that flood waters have not significantly advanced within the last 24 hours, raising hope that southern road access to Shahdadkot might remain partially open. This situational analysis is based on a rapid visual assessment of the current satellite data available over this area and will be revised and updated as new data becomes available; this analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Map scale for A4: 1:200,000; Projection: UTM Zone 42N; Datum: WGS-84.
