SITUATION

• Tropical Cyclone DINEO continued moving west south-west over the Mozambique Channel as a Tropical Cyclone. On 15 February afternoon UTC, it made landfall near the city of Massinga (Inhambane province), as a Tropical Cyclone with approx. maximum sustained wind speed of 130 km/h. On 16 February at 00.00 UTC, it continued through the provinces of Inhambane.

map UNOSAT

This map illustrates the estimated total precipitation accumulation for Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The total estimate was derived from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 10km, and covers the period from 13 to 16 (10:00 UTC) February 2017. The average precipitation during February is usually 193 mm in Mozambique and 130 mm in Zimbabwe. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and are not a substitute for ground station measurements.
Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

Situation

  • Tropical Cyclone DINEO formed over the Mozambique Channel on 13 February and then started moving south-west towards southern Mozambique, strengthening.

  • On 14 February its centre was located approx. 480 km north-east of the city of Inhambane province and it had max. sustained wind speed of 83 km/h (Tropical Storm strength).

map UNOSAT

This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over Save River in Mozambique as observed from the Radarsat-2 images acquired on 22 January 2017 and 05 February 2017. A decrease of surface waters was observed in the 05 February 2017 image compared to the 22 January 2017 image along the Save river. The surface waters decrease is about 15%. 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.

map UNOSAT

This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters around Chimuara city, Zambezia province, Mozambique as observed from the Radarsat-2 image acquired on 05 February 2017 and Sentinel-1 image acquired on11 December 2014. A relative stability of surface water extent was observed in the 05 February 2017 image compared to the 11 December 2014 image. 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.

map UNOSAT

Pungwe River in Sofala Province, Mozambique as observed from the Sentinel-1 images acquired on 05 and 29 January 2017. An increase of surface water extent was observed in the 29 January 2017 image compared to the 05 January 2017 image including the zones along the Pungwe river and several areas along this river were inundated. 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.

map UNOSAT

This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over Save River in Mozambique as observed from the Sentinel-1 image acquired on 10 January 2017 and Radarsat-2 image acquired on 22 January 2017. An increase of surface water extent was observed in the 22 January 2017 image compared to the 10 January 2017 image including the zones along the Save river and several areas along this river were inundated. The surface waters evolution is about 60% from the 10 January to the 22 January 2017.
