This map illustrates satellite-detected surface waters in Ituri Province as observed from a Sentinel-2 image acquired on 04 October 2021. Within 5 km around Lake Albert, about 40 km2 of lands appear to be flooded. The water extent appears to have increased since August 2019 and based on Worldpop population data and the detected surface waters in the analyzed area, the potentially exposed population is mainly located in the Zone de Santé of Nyarambe with ~5,200 people, Gethy with ~ 3,300 people and Tchomia with ~1,550 people.
This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to the United Nations Satellite Centre (UNOSAT)
