report UNOSAT

The Tropical Cyclone Dineo-17, is approaching Mozambique coasts and is expected to make landfall The 16 February 2017 in the central province of Inhambane. Potential heavy rainfall are also expected according microwave satellite sensors and might induce floodings in the affected areas. This report provides an analysis on the potentially exposed population per wind speed zones in Mozambique. According to our analysis approximately 250,000 people in Mozambique may be exposed to over 120km/h sustainable wind speeds and 59,000 people might be exposed to 90km/h wind speed.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 12 to 18 January 2017. The average percipitation during January is usually 209 mm in Mozambique and 155 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.
