Flood Damage in Dar Es Salaam

In a previous post I spoke briefly about the situation of the floods and what is being done about it. Previous training within Dar Es Salaam, specifically Ramani Tandale trained community members and students in tools around this area, at the time to collect geospatial data and create a map. However these skills where transferable, when the floods hit, I, as were many other of my collaborators, were inundated with information from the mappers about the situation. Their of photos are below. One of the points of note is the ide mark, showing the height of water. It wreaked havoc.
