With Hurricane Florence expected to make landfall as early as Thursday afternoon we are in full planning and mobilization stages at NICB’s Geospatial Intelligence Center.

We anticipate starting aerial collections as soon as the weather clear. While we don’t know as-yet what the collection and damage zones will be we are closely monitoring forecasts (such as the one above from FEMA) and flight planning ahead of the event.

With Hurricane Florence strengthening to a Category 4 storm the GIC is planning for a major aerial survey effort as soon as damage is known and it’s safe to fly.

Currently the first flight window is roughly Saturday September 15th. We will provide ongoing updates this week as events put more focus on this effort.

We are watching the weather and smoke conditions for the Tinder wildfire in Arizona. Right now our likely collection days are either Friday May 5th or Tuesday May 8th. The primary consideration factor is when the smoke has cleared enough to get useful images. More updates as conditions develop.

We are actively monitoring the Tinder Fire in Arizona. At this time there is a flight restriction in the area but we are in contact with Air Traffic Control and are planning to fly as soon as the flight restriction is lifted and we can get images that aren’t completely occluded by clouds. We will report issues and activities as they develop.
