This map illustrates satellitedetected water in Rubkona, Koch, and Guit Counties of South Sudan as observed from a Sentinel-2 image acquired on 17 October 2021. Within the cloud free analyzed areas of about 40,000km2, a total of about 5,700 km2 of lands appear to be flooded. Based on Worldpop population data and the detected surface waters, ~138,000 people are potentially exposed or living close to flooded areas.
