This webmap compiles UNOSAT flood data and landslide data created in support of relief efforts in Afghanistan using radar and optical satellite data acquired between 29 April and 3 May 2014. Heavy rainfall occurred on 23-24 April 2014, flooding a large part of Khwaja Du Koh city and leading to an important landslide over Ab Barek village, where almost 2,000 people were reportedly killed. This analysis has not been yet validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT
