This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of flooding within Gaza City and the Jibaliya area in Gaza, resulting from heavy rains occurring around 15 December 2013, and as detected by the Pleiades satellite on 19 December 2013. Areas of stagnant and standing water are clearly visible in a mixed residential area, flooding streets as well as proximate agriculture, housing, and vacant areas. A few additional industrial and agricultural areas nearby also show isolated indications of standing water. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
