Published on 26 Sep 2013 View Original

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of damage in a rural area near the village of Gajar and within a few kilometers of the 24 September 2013 earthquake epicenter. Using an image acquired 26 September 2013 by the Pleiades satellite, UNOSAT reviewed the area for evidence of destroyed buildings and signs of possible damage. A total of 418 structures were identified as destroyed within the 38 square kilometer area analyzed, and an additional 22 structures were possibly damaged. While hundreds of additional structures in the analyzed area showed no signs of damage visible in the satellite imagery, some areas feature near total destruction. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
