This map illustrates satellite detected waters over Xieng Ngneun District, Louangprabang province, LAO People Democratic Republic, extracted from Sentinel-1 imagery (10 m) acquired on 2 August 2016 (Pre-event) and on 23 August 2016 (Post-event). After heavy rains in early August, caused by Tropical Cyclone DIANMU-16, it is observed that the water expansion is predominantly located in areas along the Mekong river banks. Nam Khan River has increased in size along the banks but without overflowing the stream. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT
