This map prepared on the request from WFP, presents the standing flood waters over the affected Provinces of Lower Sindh,Pakistan following recent heavy monsoon rains.This analysis is based on crisis satellite imagery collected by MODIS sensors on 19 August 2011. Please note that the exact limit of the flood waters is uncertain because of the relatively low spatial resolution of the satellite sensors used for this analysis. Detected water bodies likely reflect an underestimation of all flood-affected areas within the map extent. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field.Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.Map produced for A3 printing at 1:900,000 scale.
