Post-Florence imagery captured of the Wilmington, NC area was published to the GIC Web Map portal today and is available to GIC members with credentials. The imagery shows numerous properties along the Carolina Beach coastline that have sustained wind damage. GIC collections in nearby SC areas will continue into the weekend along with processing and publishing of data coming that has come in from the field on data units that are 5-10TB in capacity!

Flooding continued in the Carolinas today, almost two weeks after Florence made landfall and inundated large parts of both states. The GIC continues to add assets to our aggressive aerial response with the aim of providing maximum coverage of impacted areas. Collections have been ongoing since Monday, September 14, using large format aerial sensors capable of capturing image swaths that are miles wide for the most efficient and rapid response possible while still providing high-resolution, detailed views.

As wide swaths of new high-resolution imagery continue to be added daily to our GIC Web Map portal, water levels in Georgetown, SC are increasing with latest forecasts calling for the worst of the flooding to come on Friday. Levels are predicted to be in the 2-4 foot range, rather than 10 feet as previously expected. That is still above levels seen following Hurricane Matthew and officials are cautioning that forecasts could shift again and return to the original 10-foot levels. In light of this, the GIC is mobilizing additional aircraft equipped with highly efficient large format aerial sensors to augment our current response. As is typical, processed imagery is expected within 24 hours of “wheels down” for GIC members and others with credentials to our Web Map portal.

With rivers still rising today, up to 8000 residents in South Carolina are being urged by authorities to prepare to evacuate as the State braces for more flooding, expected to be as high as 10 to 22 feet in places. The GIC aerial imagery collections are ongoing and new data continues to populate the GIC web map portal which now includes data from the most efficient of our camera systems, the Condor. This sensor allows for rapid wide area mapping at high altitudes, swaths that are miles wide, allowing the GIC to provide members with post-disaster imagery in record time following an event.

With post-Florence floodwaters expected to remain a problem for another week or more and with many homes continuing to be inaccessible, the Geospatial Intelligence Center response extends through the weekend and is planned to be ongoing into the coming week. New imagery has been published to the GIC web map portal and new areas of interest (AOIs) including Holly Ridge, NC and Florence SC were collected on Friday and Saturday and are being processed.
