Analysis conducted with ArcGIS v10.1
This map illustrates areas of damage in the area of Kuldan town resulting from the earthquakes occurring 24 September 2013. Using a satellite image acquired 7 October 2013 by the WorldView-2 satellite UNOSAT reviewed the area for possible damage. There were 17 structures identified as destroyed in the analyzed area, and an additional 52 were identified as possibly damaged. Possibly damaged structures lacked standard indications of earthquake damage and instead may have been recently damaged by floods, ablation, or other causes. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
