ANALYSIS SUMMARY: This analysis is based on an assessment of satellite imagery recorded on 22nd September 2011 following a gas pipeline explosion that took place on 12th September 2011, within the Mukuru-Sinai slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Analysis revealed that the explosion took place in the highly congested Mukuru-Sinai slums along the river Ngongo. This is a preliminary damage assessment, and it is likely to represent a reliable minimum estimate; the actual building damages within this area are likely to be larger.
