Tropical Cyclone Lola made landfall in Vanuatu, in the South Pacific, between 24 and 25 October, bringing heavy rainfall, strong winds and storm surges across the archipelago. Lola interrupted communications and caused widespread damage to homes and crops in the northern and central provinces of the country.
This Copernicus Sentinel-1 radar image of Cyclone Lola, acquired on 24 October, shows the eye of Lola east of Maewo Island.
The Rapid Mapping module of the Copernicus Emergency Monitoring Service (CEMS) has been activated to monitor the impact of Lola in 12 areas of interest and to provide emergency mapping for damage assessment. More information is available here: EMSR702.
