This map illustrates satellite-detected surface waters in Lower Shabelle and Middle Shabelle regions of Somalia as observed from a Sentinel-2 image acquired on 30 November 2020 at 10:12 Local time. Within the analyzed area of about 23,000 km2, a total of about 500 km2 of lands appear to be flooded. Based on Worldpop population data and the detected surface waters, about 40,000 people are potentially exposed or living close to flooded areas.
This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
