• This map illustrates satellite-detected flood water extent over Booco and Hagan areas, Hiraan region, Somalia using a Radarsat-2 image acquired on 09 May 2018. Within the extent of the map about 4,000 ha of land appear to be inundated and according to WorldPop data, ~22,000 people, live within the extent of this map about 6,500 within 100 meters distance from the flooded areas which corresponds to about 30% of population in this zone. 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.

  • This map illustrates the satellite-detected surface waters extent in Sanamxay district, Attapeu province, as observed from the TerraSar-X and Tandem-X radar imagery acquired on 27 July 2018. Satellite detected water extent analysis was performed by Centro Internazionale In Monitoraggio Ambientale Research (CIMA) & Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). Within the analyzed area, a total of 7,405 ha were detected as inundated, four days after the collapse of the dam. Disclaimer: Flood extent maps are derived from high quality satellite data using a scientifically validated retrieval algorithm. No liability concerning the contents or the use thereof is assumed by the producer. The information has limitations due to the quality and resolution of the original data sources, as well as the uncertainties associated with the retrieval algorithm. Please be aware that the thematic accuracy might be lower in urban and forested areas due to inherent limitations of the SAR analysis technique. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates a time series analysis of the evolution of satellite-detected surface waters in Sanamxay district, Attapeu province, based on satellite data collected on 13, 25 and 29 July 2018. Within the current map extent, on 13 July 2018, before the collapse of the dam, a total surface of 47,717 ha was detected as inundated and the reservoir controlled by the dam was full of water. As of 25 July 2018, two days after the dam collapsed, an additional surface of 7,531 ha of inundated areas were detected, representing an increase of the surface waters of 16%. On 29 July 2018, floodwaters are receding, especially along the riverbanks of Xe Kong River. A total surface of 30,435 ha was detected as inundated at that date, representing a decrease of the surface waters of 45%. The reservoir that was controlled by the dam has continuously decreased in its size since the dam collapsed. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas, along main riverbanks and within built-up urban areas because of the special characteristics of the used satellite data. Additional optical VHR data are needed to validate analysis over areas covered by mud, hardly detected by radar data. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • UNOSAT produced 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.

As observed from the satellite radar image, a total of 9,200 ha of land were inundated in the area of interest. By using WorldPop data, we estimate that at least 12,000 people are potentially affected or living close to the flooded area. This corresponds to about 7% 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.
