UNOSAT code: FL20220314SSD This map illustrates cumulative satellite-detected water using VIIRS in South Sudan between 10 to 14 March 2022 compared with the period from 05 to 09 March 2022. Within the cloud free analyzed areas of about 628,000 km2, a total of about 11,400 km2 of lands appear to be affected with flood waters. Water extent appears to have decreased about 12,000 km2 since the period between 05 to 09 March 2022. Based on Worldpop population data and the maximal flood water coverage, ~277,000 people are potentially exposed or living close to flooded areas.
