Myanmar: Ayeyarwady, Bago (West) and Yangon Region (Imagery analysis: 8 August 2020 | Published 10 August 2020 | Version 1.0)

Country: Myanmar Source: UNOSAT Please refer to the attached Map. This map illustrates satellite-detected surface waters over Ayeyarwady, Bago (West) and Yangon Region of Myanmar as observed from a Sentinel-1 image acquired on 8 Aug 2020. Within the analyzed area of about 31,000 km2, a total of about 2,800 km2 of lands appear to be flooded. Based on Worldpop population data and the detected surface waters, about 420,000 people are potentially 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. Important Note: Flood analysis from radar images may underestimate the presence of standing waters in built-up areas and densely vegetated areas due to backscattering properties of the radar signal.
