This map illustrates the Dayr al-Balah and Jarara areas of Gaza, as detected by the Pleiades satellite on 19 December 2013. It is provided to assist with disaster response as a result of heavy rains occurring around 15 December 2013. An area south of Dayr al-Balah features standing waters (see inset) affecting primarily agricultural fields as well as a few residences and streets. Some nearby industrial and agricultural areas show isolated indications of standing water as well. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
