The Geospatial Intelligence Center has been tirelessly collecting volumes of post-Florence imagery since Monday of this week and has completed roughly 75% of targeted areas of interest (AOIs). Around the clock data processing and uploading has allowed the GIC to rapidly publish imagery on the GIC ArcGIS web map portal since Tuesday night where it is being used by insurers, government agencies and emergency responders to assist in critical disaster relief efforts. Given reports of increased flooding and resulting damage, additional AOIs are being defined.

GIC crews caught a break in the weather and were able to capture all of hard hit New Bern, North Carolina today. Imagery is expected to be published to the GIC web map portal by end of day, Tuesday. Many other AOIs were partially collected and will continue on Tuesday as weather allows. Photo of damaged flight base courtesy of Keystone Aerial Surveys.

Target Areas of Interest (AOIs) from Charleston, SC to Beaufort, NC have been assigned to crews who mobilized but were forced to continue to wait out the weather today and were unable to collect. We will be looking for gaps in cloud coverage on Monday to capture but forecasts suggest it may be mid week before we have good flying/capture conditions. Image courtesy of GRW Aerial Surveys.

Florence continues to slowly make its way inland, leaving in its path a total of 12 now dead and approximately one million without power. Forecasters warn that rains totaling up to 3.5 feet could trigger epic flooding through early next week and could lead to tornadoes and landslides. These conditions did not permit aerial collections today and GIC crews spent the day waiting it out in Pascagoula, MS, Fayetteville, NC and other locations but will be mobilizing Sunday morning to attempt collection of Charleston and/or Hilton Head area. Flights have been coordinated with Air Traffic Control (ATC). As always, please direct your questions and comments to support@geointel.org. Image courtesy Sanborn Map Company.

The GIC is staging assets–including numerous aircraft equipped with multiple sensor types–to poise for response, expected Tuesday Sept. 18th. Areas of Interest (AOIs) are being defined as we monitor the event as it is unfolds and determining areas hit hardest for initial collection.
