The analysis was conducted analyzing GeoEye-1 & WorldView-3 images acquired on the 30 April & 1 May 2018. As observed from the satellite image, the town of Belet Weyne is completely affected by the floods. Around 70% of the extension of the town is totally inundated, being the districts of Bulahabley, Bundaweyn, Dhagahjebis, Hilac, Hindab and Lamagalay Regional Military Based, Radar and Kutimbo completely submerged in water.
