This map presents the Maungdaw and Buthidaung area where heavy rains have caused landslides and floods. This rainfall estimate was derived from NASA Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) data for precipitation over the area on the 10th - 16th of June 2010. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
