20 November 2015, Geneva, Switzerland – On last 26 October 2015 a magnitude 7.5 earthquake struck Hindu Kuch mountain regions in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The earthquake was even felt in New Delhi, India, and Islamabad, Pakistan. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) and National Disaster Management Authority in Pakistan (NDMA) requested our Rapid Mapping Service to analyze the severity of damages affecting the Afghanistan and Pakistan regions touched by the seismic tremors.

This map illustrates satellite-detected standing flood waters over the affected Provinces of Balochistan,
Punjab and Sindh hit by flash floods and urban flooding caused by heavy monsoon rains that fell across the country in early September 2012. Flood analysis is based on crisis satellite imagery collected by MODIS sensors on 14 September and 14 October 2012.

This map presents the standing flood waters over the affected districts of Badin, Mirpur Khas,Tando Allahyar and Sanghar, Pakistan. The analysis is based on satellite data recorded on 02 October 2011(MODIS Terra). A preliminary analysis indicates that the flood waters over Sanghar district has increased between 15 Sept. - 2 Oct. 2011. Standing flood water seems to be stable in spatial extent over the districts of Badin, Mirpur Khas and Tando Allahyar during the above mentioned period. Cloud cover between Sanghar and Mirpur Khas has led to an under estimate of flood waters.

This map presents the standing flood waters over the affected Badin and Mirpur Khas districts of Sindh province, Pakistan following recent heavy monsoon rains. This analysis is based on crisis satellite imagery collected by ENVISAT-ASAR WS sensors on 12 September 2011. Detected water bodies likely reflect an underestimation of all flood-affected areas within the map extent. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT. Map produced for A3 printing at 1:550,000 scale.

12 Sep 2011 description

This map presents the standing flood waters over the affected Provinces of Lower Sindh, Pakistan following recent heavy monsoon rains. This analysis indicates that flood waters have significantly expanded to the east over the last two weeks, concentrated primary in the districts of Mirpur Khas and Umer kot. These findings were based on crisis satellite imagery collected by MODIS sensors on 11 Sept. and 19 Aug. 2011. Please note that the exact limit of the flood waters is uncertain because of the relatively low spatial resolution of the satellite sensors used for this analysis.
