This map illustrates satellite-detected flood water extent over the district of Baardheere (Gedo Region), the districts of Saakow and Bu'aale (Middle Juba region) and the district of Diinsor (Bay region), Somalia using a Radarsat-2 image acquired on 09 May 2018. As observed from the satellite radar image, a total of 61,000 ha of land were inundated in the area of interest. By using WordPop data, we estimate that at least 100,000 people are potentially affected or living close to the potentially flood area. This correspond about 35% of the population living in the area of interest.

This map illustrates satellite-detected flood water extent and IDP distribtuion within the town of Belet Weyne in Belet Weyne District,Hiiran Region, Somalia. The analysis was conducted analyzing GeoEye-1 & WorldView-3 images acquired on the 30 April & 1 May 2018. As observed from the satellite image, the town of Belet Weyne is completely affected by the floods. Around 70% of the extension of the town is totally inundated, being the districts of Bulahabley, Bundaweyn, Dhagahjebis, Hilac, Hindab and Lamagalay Regional Military Based, Radar and Kutimbo completely submerged in water.

This map illustrates satellite-detected flood water extent over the district of Belet Weyne, Hiraan region, Somalia using a SAR image from 06 May 2018 and an optical VHR image over Beledweyne town.
More than 2800 km2 of lands were assessed and about 19,000 ha (190km2) appear to be inundated which corresponds to about to about 7% of the total analysed zone. In this analysed area and according to WorldPop data the population is estimated to ~126,000 people, ~ 32,000 live in the flooded zone and about 70,000 within 100 meters distance from the flooded areas.

This map illustrates satellite-detected flood water extent over the districts of Saakow and Bu'aale, Middle Juba, Somalia. The mostly affected areas are in the district of Saakow, where 365 km2 of land are flooded. In total, 19 settlements are within the inundated zones: 12 in Buaale and 7 in Saakow; however, more than 100 settlements, are within 500 meters distance from the flooded areas and might be affected due to the proximity to Juba River. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of displaced person settlements in Baidoa town, the southwestern capital of Bay Region in Somalia. Using a WorldView-2 satellite image collected on 30 December 2017, UNOSAT analyzed a total of 286 distinct IDP shelter sites including 81 new sites, 62 expanded sites, 49 contracted site and 94 unchanged sites as well as 73 closed sites. Compared to the previous analysis on 21 April 2017, this represents an increase of 16 sites (5.9%). This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

This map illustrates satellite-detected damage resulting from the bombing on 14 October 2017 in Mogadishu, Somalia. Using imagery collected 16 October 2017 by the WorldView-3 satellite, and compared with a previous imagery collected on 29 September 2017 by the GeoEye-1 satellite, UNOSAT detected at least 51 destroyed and damaged structures within the blast area, with rescue and recovery operations ares visible as well. Most damage was apparently caused by the explosive force of the blast, though numerous structures also indicate damage from fire.
