概要:Abstract

Dominica, a small island located in the Caribbean Sea, was severely hit by Hurricane Maria in September 18, 2017. Hurricane Maria, registered as category five in Saffir-Simpson scale with maximum wind speed of 260 km/h, was the worst natural disaster to hit Dominica, leaving 68 people dead or missing. Following the event, the electricity was cut and communications were down (apart from a few amateur radio operators).

Many bridges were damaged and water supplies were disrupted by erosion and breakage of pipes. Therefore, it is important to survey the built environment on the island and record the damage and modes of failures of buildings and infrastructure. Building codes for riverside and coastal construction to resist the effects of extreme events are less developed because such events are rare and the available knowledge is limited.

We report the results of a joint UK universities field survey of the island in early 2018, in collaboration with local contacts in Dominica.

Survey target areas were selected on the basis of post-hurricane damage mapping, carried out using remotely sensed imagery (from aircraft and Earth Observation satellites) via volunteer crowdsource 'mapathon' events in the Caribbean and UK. The purpose of the field survey was to document the geomorphological processes and their interactions, as well

as damage to the built environment resulting from those processes in order to investigate damage mechanisms and building fragilities.

In this presentation, we report the damage to critical infrastructure and discuss various failure modes observed. In addition, we report the runup of storm surges caused by the Hurricane Maria along the coast of Dominica and data on river floods and overbank flooding in urban areas.
