This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of storm damage in the city of Bamako, Mali, resulting from heavy rains in late August 2013, and especially on 28 August 2013. Using QuickBird satellite imagery collected on 23 August and 1 September 2013, UNOSAT located areas of apparent muddy transportation routes, standing water, submerged river banks, islands, and marshes, and possible flash flood damage. Specifically, a total of 337 kilometers of roads in the city were likely mud affected as of 1 September, though this is likely an underestimate given the difficulties assessing road conditions in satellite imagery. In addition, 277 areas of standing water were identified, 19 areas indicated possible flash flood damage, and more than seven square kilometers of river banks, islands, and marshes were flooded. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
