Situation report:

The image shows wide spread flooding not only along the river corridor but also other low lying areas. The flood has receded since the peak event, leaving scar from erosion and deposition prominently visible. There are some water logged areas still visible and some are close to settlement area (indicated by blue polygon). The flood had inundated road infrastructure in many stretches and highly likely that it was damaged at 3 place.
