This rainfall analysis was made at the Goddard Space Flight Center using data from a near-real time Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA). TRMM-based near-real time Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) data are used to monitor rainfall over the global Tropics. This analysis shows that between Feb 20-27 the tropical cyclone contributed to flooding rainfall totaling over 280mm (~11 inches). Image courtesy of NASA.
