There are clear indications of extensive building damages within the city of Brickaville, likely the combined result of strong winds and a storm surge flowing inland along the Rianila River, based on a rapid review of post-cyclone satellite imagery from 18 and 21 February 2012. The main transport routes appear open without significant debris or flood water obstructions; further, the bridge (Rt2) crossing the Rianila River appears undamaged and functional. There are also areas within the city of extensive tree cover loss. As illustrated in the map below, a selection of prominently damaged buildings have been marked to illustrate both the relative distribution and severity of the impact of the tropical cyclone. Note: this product is not intended as a comprehensive damage assessment. It is probable that the total number of destroyed and severely damaged buildings is in the hundreds. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Report scale for A4: 1:15,000; map projection UTM Zone 39S-WGS-84.
