Flood status report for Bangladesh

alertlevel

Status: Red. Current satellite observations show 13 out of 125 areas (10%) having critically high flood magnitude.

The Bangladesh monitoring region consists of 125 areas that are analyzed daily, including the following rivers: Meghna, Ganges, Brahmaputra, Bramaputra, Bramaputra Trib.

This report does not provide early warning or forecasting information, but describes the current flood status of rivers based on the past 24h of satellite observations.

The status is determined by the number of areas with high flood magnitude (see below), as determined by the Global Flood Detection System based on passive microwave satellite observations of surface water. The status is set to "Red" if more than 10 areas or more than 30% of areas have high flood magnitude. The status is set to "Orange" if more than 5 or more than 10% of areas have high flood magnitude. Otherwise, the status is set to "Green".

Current Status of monitoring areas

Legend: green = no flood, orange = magnitude > 2 (small potential flood), red = magnitude > 4 (potential flood with high return period)
