This map illustrates in yellow those areas likely covered with standing flood waters over flood-affected Municipalities in southern 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.
