This map illustrates satellite detected flood water over the affected state of Bihar, India. Those areas likely covered with flood water as of 22 August 2007 are shown in red and are distinguished from pre-flood water levels (in blue) as measured for 1-10 May 2007. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
