This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of flood affected land as detected in satellite imagery acquired by the WolrdView-2 satellite on 13 August 2014 in Shendi, Nile State, Sudan. Imagery shows the presence of overflowing on the Nile River. The town of Shendi was inundated by floods caused by heavy rains. Agricultural fields surrounding the town are also affected by varying levels of water and saturated soils. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas along main river banks, and within built-up urban areas because of the special characteristics of the satellite data used. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.
