Hi all,
I begun to trace the area looking at the tents and I found a lot of
structures with the colour red that are new.
See for example this one https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/340978118 on the
Airbus imagery.

It could be that they are tents but they look very squared to me, maybe too
As I found several of them I wonder if they are tents or maybe a piece of
metal that the people set up after the earthquake to stand under.
Do you think I should map it as a "spontaneous camp" too?
