“There are a lot of uprooted trees and damaged houses, but the farms have taken the biggest hit: a lot of rice and maize plantations have been destroyed, just a month before harvest time. For people in rural areas, who live mainly off the land, it’s a disaster.”

“Landslides triggered by violent winds and torrential rain have already killed three people. The damage is more extensive than expected. There is likely to be an increase in the number of casualties, once the wind has abated and rescue teams have a clearer picture of the situation. My team will assess the damage and supply emergency assistance to the most vulnerable."
