A heat map released by NASA using satellite-derived synthetic aperture radar data shows the likely extent of damage from the devastating Tuesday explosion in port Beirut.
A @NASAJPL team, in collaboration with @EOS_SG, used satellite-derived data to map the likely extent of damage from the Aug. 4 explosion in Beirut. Maps like this one can help identify badly damaged areas where people may need assistance: https://t.co/osF7y1tOQ3 pic.twitter.com/mamSfRGK4Q— NASA (@NASA) August 8, 2020
The explosion in #Beirut’s port killed over 158 people, injured over 6,000, and displaced more than 300,000. New footage in 4K shows how it unfolded in slow motion, ravaging buildings as far as 10 km away and sparking mass anti-government protests.https://t.co/1V61mqo7Am pic.twitter.com/ja6RC24mqj— Al Arabiya English (@AlArabiya_Eng) August 9, 2020
