report UNOSAT

PREFACE:

This report provides a preliminary analysis of the Ab Barak landslide which occurred on 2 May 2014. Satellite imagery acquired on 7 June 2013 and 5 May 2014 by the WorldView-2 satellite as well as Google Earth images were used for this report.

14 May 2014 description

This map illustrates satellite-detected flooded areas of Kulukh Tapah, Kunduz Province, Afghanistan as seen on WorldView-2 satellite imagery collected 13 May 2014. Heavy rainfall occurred on 23-24 April 2014, causing flooding on the edge of town along the river bank. Approximately 27 structures have been inundated. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas along main river banks, and within built-up urban areas because of the special characteristics of the satellite data used. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field.

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of landslide damage in the village of Ab Barek, Badakshan, Afghanistan. Following heavy rains in the region, a landslide partially buried Ab Barek on 2 May 2014. Using a satellite image acquired 5 May 2014 by the WorldView-2 satellite, UNOSAT delineated the primary landslide area as well as a probable secondary area affected by the slide. In addition, areas of IDPs, relief operations, and water pooling due to the landslide are indicated as of 5 May.

report UNOSAT

08 May 2014, Geneva, Switzerland - Heavy rains that begun in April in northern Afghanistan have caused flooding and one catastrophic landslide that killed an unknown number of people. Additional flash floods and landslides continue to affect tens of thousands of people in many parts of the northern region while forecasts indicate more bad weather is to be expected.

map UNOSAT

This map illustrates potential satellite-detected inundated areas and water south of Sar-E Pol city, Afghanistan. UNOSAT analyzed imagery from the KOMPSAT2 satellite collected 05 May 2014 in response to heavy rainfall occurring on 23-24 April 2014. UNOSAT extracted areas of water and inundated soils to indicate likely flood affected lands. This map includes both permanent water bodies, such as streams, and potential flood waters together due to limitations in source data.

This map illustrates satellite-detected flooded areas of Khwajah Du Koh, Jawzjan Province, Afghanistan as seen on WorldView-2 satellite imagery collected 29 April 2014 and 7 May 2014. Heavy rainfall occurred on 23-24 April 2014, flooding a large part of the town. By the 7th May the flooded area appears to have decreased significantly compared with flood waters detected on 29th April.

map UNOSAT

This map presents the estimated total rainfall accumulation for Afghanistan covering the period from 30 April to 06 May 2014. This total estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 0.25 degrees for this region. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements.

This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of landslide damage in the village of Ab Barek, Badakshan, Afghanistan. Following heavy rains in the region, a landslide partially buried Ab Barek on 2 May 2014. Using a satellite image acquire 3 May 2014 by the WorldView-1 satellite, UNOSAT delineated the primary landslide area as well as a probable secondary area directly affected by the slide. Using a lower resolution Landsat-8 image collected 30 March 2014, a probably area of buried housing is also indicated though this should be treated as preliminary and speculative.

This map illustrates potenital satellite-detected inundated areas and water in and north of Sar-E Pol city, Afghanistan. UNOSAT analyzed imagery from the Pleiades satellite collected 1 May 2014 in response to heavy rainfall occurring on 23-24 April 2014. UNOSAT extracted areas of water and inundated soils to indicate likely flood affected lands. This map includes both permanent water bodies, such as streams, and potential flood waters together due to limitations in source data.
