This map presents the standing flood waters over the affected Provinces of Lower Sindh, Pakistan following recent heavy monsoon rains. This analysis indicates that flood waters have significantly expanded to the east over the last two weeks, concentrated primary in the districts of Mirpur Khas and Umer kot. These findings were based on crisis satellite imagery collected by MODIS sensors on 11 Sept. and 19 Aug. 2011. Please note that the exact limit of the flood waters is uncertain because of the relatively low spatial resolution of the satellite sensors used for this analysis, Detected water bodies likely reflect an underestimation of all flood-affected areas within the map extent. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.Map produced for A3 printing at 1:900,000 scale.
