  • This map illustrates satellite-detected flood water extent and IDP distribtuion within the town of Belet Weyne in Belet Weyne District,Hiiran Region, Somalia. The analysis was conducted analyzing GeoEye-1 & WorldView-3 images acquired on the 30 April & 1 May 2018. As observed from the satellite image, the town of Belet Weyne is completely affected by the floods. Around 70% of the extension of the town is totally inundated, being the districts of Bulahabley, Bundaweyn, Dhagahjebis, Hilac, Hindab and Lamagalay Regional Military Based, Radar and Kutimbo completely submerged in water. The flood waters inside areas of partially flooded districts are receding. More than 110 IDP sites are located inside the town, and 50% of them are inside areas completly flooded. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected flood water extent over the district of Baardheere (Gedo Region), the districts of Saakow and Bu'aale (Middle Juba region) and the district of Diinsor (Bay region), Somalia using a Radarsat-2 image acquired on 09 May 2018. As observed from the satellite radar image, a total of 61,000 ha of land were inundated in the area of interest. By using WordPop data, we estimate that at least 100,000 people are potentially affected or living close to the potentially flood area. This correspond about 35% of the population living in the area of interest. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas along main river banks and within built-up urban areas because of the special characteristics of the satellite data used. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR UNOSAT.
