This map illustrates satellite detected flood water over the affected States of southern Sudan. Those areas likely covered with flood water as of 21 July 2007 are shown in red and are distinguished from pre-flood water levels (in blue) as measured on 29 May 2007. Cloud cover has prevented a complete analysis of this area and thus there may be considerably more water present than indicated. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
