No, there's no way of telling if a building has been damaged - I'm been
mapping for a while & I couldn't even pick them as buildings, without
changing to a different set of imagery. Where I was just looking I couldn't
even tell if the area had actually been burnt over - it all looked like
normal dry grassland to me?

Maybe swap across to LPI imagery & just map all the buildings & other POI,
without worrying about damage? That would be a huge bonus as far as OSM is
concerned, but wouldn't actually do anything at all for the disaster
recovery side of things?

No, & I agree with you that it won't be a good, first look :-(
