This UNOSAT LIVE map integrates geo-spatial data from a range of sources in support of response efforts for seasonal floods caused by torrential rainfalls in central and southern areas of Mozambique.
Tropical Cyclone Dineo-17 is approaching Mozambique coast and it is expected to make a landfall on the 16 February 2017 in the province of Inhambane. Potential heavy rainfall are also expected according microwave satellite sensors and might induce flooding in the affected areas. According to our analysis approximately 250,000 people in Mozambique may be exposed to over 120km/h sustainable wind speed zones and 59,000 people might be exposed to 90km/h wind speed. About 1,160,000 people might be exposed to moderate winds of 60km/h.
