This map illustrates potentially affected structures and buildings in Nyiragongo district, Nord-Kivu province, DR Congo as detected by satellite image acquired after the 22 May 2021 Nyiragongo volcanic eruption. UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis used a Sentinel-1 image acquired on 25 May 2021, at 16:21 UTC, to extract the lava flow extent. Within the map extent, about 1,722 structures and the road about 18 km are potentially affected by the lava flow.
This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
