Areas prone to flood risk have been estimated based on elevation and water flow direction, in addition to observations from previous winter flooding. In case of heavy rain or snow, these lines represent the channels through which water runoff will predominantly flow and collect water. The thicker blue lines represent channels of higher flow accumulation, and thus areas prone to flooding.
The water flow channels as shown on the map were created based on a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) using hydrological analysis techniques. Elevation point data with an accuracy of 2.5 meters was interpolated to create the DEM. In case of heavy rain or snow, these lines represent the channels through which water runoff will predominantly collect and flow. The heavier blue lines represent channels of higher flow accumulation.
Flood incidents were observed and reported by ACTED, JEN, and Oxfam on 2 November 2015.
Analysis with Pleiades Data Acquired 5 October 2015 and WorldView-1 Data Acquired 11 November 2014
In recent weeks, the upsurge of Syrians seeking asylum in European countries has overwhelmed existing capacity. According to UNHCR, as of July 2015 almost 350,000 Syrians have applied for asylum in Europe since the conflict in Syria began, nearly half applying in Germany and Sweden and one third in Serbia, Hungary, Austria, Bulgaria, and the Netherlands combined.
The ETC was activated in Syria on 14 January 2013 to provide common telecommunications services to the humanitarian community responding to the crisis both within Syria, and in surrounding countries. Lack of access, escalating insecurity and restrictions on movement complicate these efforts and have at times led to missions being cancelled. However, preparedness plans allow for the immediate expansion of operations once access improves.
