This map illustrates satellite detectedpotentially damaged buildings in Cockburn island following the landfall of Tropical Cyclone IRMA-17 on 11 September 2017. UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis used a Pleiades satellite image acquired on 15 September 2017 as post imagery. We identified 400 potentially damaged structures within the analyzed area. According to the pre-building footprints provided by Humanitarian Open Street Map, this represents ~51% of the total number of structures in Cockburn island. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
