This map illustrates potentially damaged structures and buildings and related density in Dominica summarized by Parishes as detected by Pléiades and WorldView-2/3 satellite imagery after landfall of the Tropical Cyclone Maria-17 on 19 September 2017. The UNITAR-UNOSAT analysis combined with Copernicus analysis identified about 28,000 potentially damaged structures across the Dominica within the cloud free areas. Taking into account the pre-building footprints provided by Humanitarian OpenStreetMap, this represents about 76 % of the total number of structures/buildings. Please note that some areas could not be analyzed due to the cloud cover. The most affected parishes in terms of percentage of damage are St. Andrew and St. David, both located in the eastern part of the country with an estimate of more than 85% of damage. Total and final estimates by parishes are summarized in the table below. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
