Fire in Canary Islands, Spain
Fire in Canary Islands, Spainbergstroem Tue, 21/05/2019 - 11:21

On Wednesday 15 May, a wildfire broke out within an area of high ecological value in the Teide National Park, located at the base of the Mount Teide Volcano on Tenerife Island, Spain.

According to media reports, over 100 firefighters supported by helicopters spent 24 hours fighting the blaze. Initial efforts to extinguish the fire were hampered by the low humidity, remote location of the fire, and strong winds. Army bulldozers were also used to dig trenches to contain the fire. It is not currently known what caused the fire, however Spain has been experiencing a heatwave which increased the risk of fires with Teide National Park being assigned a “High Danger” rating in the Fire Danger Forecast of the Copernicus EMS European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) at the time of the blaze.

The Copernicus EMS Rapid Mapping module was activated on 16 May to provide a Grading Map over one Area of Interest (AoI). The grading map was produced using optical satellite imagery from the CNES Pléiades-1A/B acquired on 17 May. The Grading Overview Map shows 53 ha (0.5 km2) of the area burnt at the time of satellite imagery acquisition.

The map and vector data are available for viewing and download on the EMS Website: EMSR360: Forest Fire in Canary Islands, Spain.

Flood in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Flood in Bosnia and Herzegovinabergstroem Mon, 20/05/2019 - 15:13

On Sunday 12 May, heavy rain caused flooding across Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the rivers of Vrbas, Bosna, Sana, Una, and Ušora being affected the most. Flooding and landslides disrupted power and water supplies and damaged local infrastructure.

The ECHO Daily Flash of 16 May reports that one person is missing from the town of Žepce and that at least 15 people have been displaced in Kotor Varoš. Media reports estimate that more than 200 houses have been damaged in Prijedor, affecting thousands of people. Bosnia’s civil protection agency has declared a state of natural disaster and hundreds of civil protection staff were deployed to the worst affected areas. Military personnel have also been called in to reinforce flood defences along the banks of the Sana river.

The Copernicus EMS Rapid Mapping module was activated on 14 May to provide First Estimate Products and Delineation Maps over five Areas of Interest (AoI). For four of them, the initial information was delivered through “First Estimate Products” (FEP), an additional Rapid Mapping product available since 1 April which aims to provide a rough estimation of the disaster impacts within 2 hours from image reception and can be used to redefine AoIs.

The delineation map released for the Srbac AoI, Bosnia and Herzegovina was produced using radar satellite imagery of the Copernicus Sentinel-1A acquired on 16 May. The first Delineation Overview Map of the Srbac AoI shows 749.3 ha (7.5 km2) of the area flooded at the time of satellite imagery acquisition.

The map and vector data are available for viewing and download on the EMS Website: EMSR358: Flood in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Flood in the North of Italy
Flood in the North of Italybergstroem Fri, 17/05/2019 - 17:02

On Saturday 11 May, a severe weather event occurred across the central and north-eastern regions of Italy, bringing heavy rain, strong winds and hailstorms. Several major rivers overflowed, leading to wide-spread flooding, crop damage and landslides.

The ECHO Daily Flash of 15 May reports that floods in the Emilia-Romagna Region have damaged approximately 200 homes, affecting at least 1,200 people. Flood waters also caused a bridge collapse within the Rimini province and power outages across Fregona. Farmers’ associations in Puglia estimate that the extreme weather has caused hundreds of thousands of euros worth of damage to local crops. According to media reports, evacuations were carried out in the province of Modena and military personnel have been deployed to help construct temporary flood defences.

The Copernicus EMS Rapid Mapping module was activated on 15 May to provide Delineation Maps over two Areas of Interest (AoI). The initial information for both areas was delivered through “First Estimate Products” (FEP), a new Rapid Mapping product available since 1 April which aims to provide a rough estimation of the disaster impacts within 2 hours from image reception and can be used to redefine AoIs.

The delineation map released for Modena AoI, Italy was produced using radar satellite imagery of the Copernicus Sentinel-1A acquired on 12 and 13 May. The first Delineation Overview Map of the Modena AoI shows 283 ha (2.8 km2) of the area flooded at the time of satellite imagery acquisition.

The map and vector data are available for viewing and download on the EMS Website: EMSR359: Flood in the North of Italy.
