This map illustrates population density combined with in dark blue those areas likely covered with standing flood waters over the affected Municipalities of Uruguay. This analysis was made using pre and post-flooding MODIS-Terra Rapid Response imagery recorded on 19 April and 9-10 May 2007. The estimated total area of flood waters has been calculated for each of the affected Municipalities. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
