This map illustrates the floods (cumulative) aggregated using NOAA20-VIIRS in Bangladesh between the 29th of July to the 2nd of August 2020 and between the 23rd to the 27th of July 2020. Between these two periods, the floodwaters have increased from 30,000 km2 to 36,000 km2. The increase has been mainly observed within districts of Dhaka, Khulna, Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions. Based on Worldpop spatial demographic data, about 37.5 million people are exposed or living close to flooded areas. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
