This map illustrates satellite detected flood water over the affected States of eastern Sudan. Those areas likely covered with flood water as of 16 July 2007 are shown in red and are distinguished from the Nile river level (in blue) as measured on 29 May 2007. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
