The European Union announced yesterday that its Copernicus satellite is producing maps that provide essential geospatial information to help rescue teams coordinate and support the people most affected by Flood Daniel in eastern Libya. This comes in support of the response to the catastrophic floods that struck Libya, it added.
The EU reminded that the floods in Libya affected not only Derna, but also many other cities. According to images obtained by the European Union’s Copernicus satellite, 4,454 buildings in Al Beida were also affected by the floods.
This effect is very clear when comparing photos taken of the city before and after Storm Daniel.
