Analysis Summary: The city center of Tando Allayar is largely unaffected; however there are large concentrations of standing flood waters located immediately to the south and north of the city. There are several neighbourhoods south of the city along the Chambar Road (to the south-east) and the Tando Mohd Khan Road (to the south-west) which are either partially or almost entirely submerged or surrounded by flood waters, leaving potentially hundreds of residential and commercial buildings isolated without functional road access. The majority of flooding appears to be located on agricultural lands. Further, there is no apparent flooding on any of the main roads leading into the city, and should be fully operational. Please note: limited cloud cover has likely obscured some small areas affected by the flooding. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field.
