This map illustrates satellite detected flood water over the affected States of eastern Sudan. Those areas likely covered with flood water as of 2-4 September 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.
