Satellite-detected water extents as of 30 October 2019, over Beled Weyne District, Hiraan Region in Somalia
UNOSAT code: FL20191030SOM This map illustrates satellite-detected surface water in Beled Weyne District, Hiraan Region in Somalia analyzed with Sentinel-1 imagery acquired on 30 October 2019. Within the analysed extent of about 2,500 km2, a total of about 155 km2 of land appear to be flooded. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT. Important note: Flood analysis based on Sentinel-1 imagery may significantly underestimate the presence of standing floodwater in dense built-up areas due to backscattering of the radar signal.
