MSF has reached the flood affected regions in Bihar state and reports back from the frontlines:
An emergency relief team from the humanitarian aid agency, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has reached the areas worst affected by the flooding in Bihar State, India. The team, including a logistician, a water-sanitation engineer and a medical doctor, are assessing the extent of the humanitarian needs in Araria and Purnea-Madhepura. The team has also brought supplies of non-food items for distribution to the affected population.
Stefan Geens over at Ogle Earth has converted the UNOSAT PDF maps into a KMZ file for those of you interested in viewing the flooding in Bihar in Google Earth. We covered this in an earlier post sans KMZ. When will UNOSAT start publishing all their data in KMZ?
