This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected districts of Chibuto & Xai-Xai of Gaza Province, Mozambique. Flooded areas have been marked as Red areas represent standing flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence. Flood analysis was made using MODIS Terra & Aqua data recorded 26 January 2011. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. The rainfall estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 25km for this region. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements.
