UNOSAT acts as satellite analysis hub to help in assessing the impact of Cyclone Haiyan

Report
UNOSAT

10 November 2013, Geneva, Switzerland - International experts agree that Cyclone Haiyan that hit the Philippines on 9 November was "probably the most intense and strongest storm of this type to make landfall". While cyclones of this intensity have occurred before, they usually lose part of their strength by the time they reach shore. Not Haiyan, which swept through six central Philippine islands packing winds of up to 270 Km/h and causing immense damage and probably unprecedented loss of life.

Philippines: Satellite Assessment of cyclone affected areas, Misamis Occidental (as of 12 Dec 2012)

This map illustrates satellite detected areas of potentially affected/flooded areas, infrastructure and settlements in Misamis Occidental Philippines. It is likely that the analysis of potentially affected/flooded areas 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 analysis has not yet been validated in the field

Flood Affected Areas Along Cagayan River, Cagayan Valley Province, Philippines (as of 30 Sep 2011)

This map presents the standing flood waters over the affected districts in Cagayan Province, Philippines, following the tropical cyclone ´Pedring´ as based on analysis of satellite imagery collected on 29 September 2011.
