Breakages identified in the map have been classified into six different categories; Open, Overflow, Potential Overflows, Potential breakages, Closed with sandbags and Closed. A total of 84 Open points were identified, 39 on the Shabelle River and 45 on the Juba River which require immediate action in advance of the strong possibility of normal to above normal Deyr (October-December) 2019 season rainfall.

Data Quality
The methodology used mainly relies on the use of Remote Sensing (RS) interpretation with only limited “ground truthing” due to access constraints. Open breakages and overflows might have been omitted or mis-classified as potential in some cases where satellite images were not available or the images may not have been very clear due to heavy cloud cover and dense vegetation cover.
