Cyclone Nargis hit Myanmar (Burma)

Post by Mohamed on Fri May 09, 2008 1:47 am

"Whoever saved a life, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind" (Qur'an 5:32).

An IR team is currently preparing to fly out to Myanmar and they need £3 million for:

plastic sheeting, tents, water purification tablets, water filters, hygiene kits, medicines, mosquito nets and food.

Myanmar Cyclone: Before and After

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) a visual-infrared instrument on NASA's Terra satellite, documented the extent of the flooding in a pair of images.

The earlier photo shows Myanmar on April 15; crisp boundaries separate the dark blue rivers from the green- and tan-colored landmasses.

In the later image, the cyclone has come ashore at the mouths of the Irrawaddy River [lower left] and swept northeast, flooding the whole southern region and dumping turquoise-tinted runoff into the Gulf of Martaban.

NASA says that images like these will aid recovery efforts by showing emergency responders where to focus.

Thank you for posting this link Shammy

If you move your mouse over the image, you will see what the area looked like on April 15, before the Cyclone hit, with rivers and lakes are sharply defined against a backdrop of vegetation and fallow agricultural land. The Irrawaddy River flows south through the left-hand side of the image, splitting into numerous distributaries known as the Mouths of the Irrawaddy. The wetlands near the shore are a deep blue green. Cyclone Nargis came ashore across the Mouths of the Irrawaddy and followed the coastline northeast.
