This map illustrates potentially damaged structures and buildings in Luganville Municipality, Sanma Province, Vanuatu as detected by satellite image acquired after landfall of the Tropical Cyclone Harold-20 on 6 April 2020. UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis used a Pleiades image acquired on 7 April 2020 as post event image. Within the Luganville Municipality boundary, UNITAR-UNOSAT identified in the cloud free zones 1,972 potentially damaged structures. Taking into account the pre-building footprints provided by OpenStreetMap, this represents about 35 % of the total number of structures within the analyzed cloud free areas.
This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
