This map shows landslides mapped from satellite imagery following the Regent event on 15 August 2017. The main landslide outline in Regent has been updated from the product released by UNITAR-UNOSAT (published 16 August, version 1.0) using the updated UNITAR-UNOSAT georectification of the satellite image on 17th August. The main Regent landslide event is 6 km long, including source area and run-out to the sea. It is interpreted as a debris slide in its upper reaches, transitioning to a debris flow and then a sediment-laden flood.

This map illustrates satellite-detected surface water extent in the central part of Bangladesh using a Sentinel-1 satellite image acquired on the 12 August 2017 with a total surface of 4,280,650 ha. In this analyzed area; 1,644,983 ha (38%) of lands are likely affected. These lands are are mainly cropland irrigated and rainfed areas and estimated to 1,576,351 ha. The population exposure analysis using WorldPop data shows that ~17,000,000 people are potentially affected by floods in the analysed zone: ~8,400,000 are located in Dhaka Division and ~5,750,000 in Rajshahi Division.
