This map illustrates satellite-detected areas flood waters along the Limpopo River in the Guija and Chokwe districts of Gaza Province, Mozambique, as detected by FORMOSAT-2 imagery acquired 24 January 2013. There has been a dramatic increase of flood waters from 23rd â?? 24th January 2013. Multiple villages including the city of Chokwe are completely inundated by flood waters along the river. Flood waters have begun streaming south of Chokwe city into surrounding agricultural areas, also affecting villages south of the city. East of the Limpopo river additional villages are inundated as flood waters progress south east from the river. Large sections of road and railroad are also potentially affected. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
