This analysis indicates floodwaters have receded considerably as of 2 February 2013. While several villages are still partially inundated by flood waters these have decreased considerably in recent days. Sections of road remain potentially affected or flooded, though are likely to become accessible as the water levels continue to recede. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field.
