This map illustrates potentially damaged structures and buildings in Lakemba Island, Lau province, Eastern division of Fiji as detected by satellite images acquired after landfall of the Tropical Cyclone YASA. UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis used a WorldView-1 image acquired on 9 January 2021 as a post-event image. Within the island extent, UNITAR-UNOSAT identified 75 damaged structures and 71 potentially damaged structures. Taking into account the pre-building footprints provided by OpenStreetMap, this represents about 20% of the total number of structures.
This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
