Flood in Sudan
Sudan has been experiencing flooding since July 2014, and as of 22 August 37 people have died and over 150,000 have been affected. The floods spread across twelve states, particularly the Khartoum, River Nile, South Kordofan and White Nile States and thousands of homes have been destroyed.
The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated on 05 August 2014 to provide imagery from space of the disaster, and this map is one example of the flood monitoring. The RADARSAT-2 data used to produce the map was acquired on 08 August 2014, and a Landsat 7 image from 2000 was used for reference.
