This map illustrates satellite-detected areas flood waters along the Limpopo River in the city of Chokwe of Gaza Province, Mozambique, as detected by WorldView-2 imagery acquired 26 January 2013. Multiple villages including the city of Chokwe are completely inundated by flood waters along the river. However flood waters appear to be receding in this area as they move south of Chokwe. Flood waters have reached as far as Xai Xai south of Chokwe 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 affected. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
