This map illustrates satellite-detected areas affected by mud and water flow in the Kinama/Kamenge neighbourhoods of Bujumbura, Burundi. Heavy rains on 9 February caused numerous flash floods across the city and surrounding areas, and UNOSAT analysed imagery acquired by the Pleiades satellite on 14 February 2014. About 553 ha of area seem to be affected by the mud/water flow. 1730 houses or structures are located within this area. About 1140 ha are potentially affected by waters with an estimated 10,000 houses/structures located in this zone. Satellite imagery was poor quality with haze affecting clarity, and urban areas precise detection is difficult, and thus affected areas may be underestimated. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
