This map illustrates potentially affected structures and buildings north of Goma airport, Nord-Kivu province, D.R. of the Congo as detected by satellite image acquired after the eruption of the Mount Nyiragongo euption of 22 May 2021. UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis used a Sentinel-1 image acquired on 25 May 2021, at 16:21 UTC, to extract the lava flow extent. Within this map extent, 1,540 structures and 9 km of roads appear to be affected by the lava.
This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
