Assessment of Urban Flooding Caused by Hurricane Gonu in the Seeb City Using IKONOS Satellite Imagery


Authors: Alnaabi A, Ait Belaid M, Elbattay A
Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess the effect of flooding on urban areas (both existing and planned) and to verify the degree of certainty of with the existing maps of floods risk at an extreme event such Hurricane Gonu; 2007. The Wilayat Seeb located in Sultanate of Oman was significantly affected by Guno hence it was chosen as case study. The methodology adopted is based on the use of (i) IKONOS Satellite Imagery, before and after the Hurricane, (ii) existing Flood Risk map for the region and (iii) the urban general plan for Wilayat Seeb in order to (1) determine affected areas by floods and to compare them with existing Flood Risk map and (2) to investigate the impact according to the urban general plan whether it has been implemented at the time of Guno or not. As for the first objective, the results shows that 54.9% of the selected area was flooded during Hurricane Guno, while the proportion of projected immersion for the same area according to the flood risk map was estimated at 39.1%. The comparison indicated that 72.4% of flood risk map matched with the affected area retrieved from IKONOS Imagery. Therefore, the percentage of affected area which did not correspond to the flood risk map was about 48.4% of the total area. For the second objective, the implemented urban plan was estimated at 26 sq km, while the non implemented urban plan was estimated at 18.5 sq km until 2007. The total area affected by the flood in the implemented urban plans was 21.7 sq km which represent 83.47% of its total area. The non implemented urban plan that would be affected was 15.4 sq km which represented 83.49% of its total area. The area of implemented urban plans expected to be effected according to existing flood risk map was 15 sq km which represented 58%, while the area of non implemented plan would be 8.1 sq km that represented 44.1%. The most affected area by the floods was North Al Mawaleh Town, while the least affected was South Maabela Town. The study showed a significant difference between the maximum Flood Risk map and what happened during an extreme events such as the Hurricane Guno. The study suggests that the concerned authorities have to consider reviewing the flood risk maps.
