Flooded areas have been sorted into 3 classes: Red areas represent standing flood waters identified on 29 March; Orange areas represent standing flood waters identified on 20 March; and Blue areas represent pre-flood waters from multiple sources. Flood analysis was made using DMC imagery & ENVISAT-ASAR data (WSM). This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field.
