Assistance from the Puntland authorities, the UN and partners continues to arrive in the hardest hit areas as water-logged roads begin to clear and repairs made. Puntland authorities completed a bypass on a break in the main road between Garowe and Dangaroyo, facilitating the delivery of relief supplies. UN, ICRC, and partners have set up an operational hub in Dangoroyo from where they have reached some of the hardest hit areas with emergency non-food items and medical supplies starting on 13 November and with food starting on 15 November. The aerial assessment conducted on 15 November confirmed that most hard-walled structures were not significantly damaged and pinpointed areas of supply routes in need of repair. No large groupings of displaced populations were observed, though traditional shelters were either absent or skeletal without covering. Despite this progress, Puntland authorities continued to express discontent with the pace and form of assistance.
From 650 medical consultations conducted so far, information gathered confirms 80 reported deaths, mostly of children and the elderly who were most vulnerable to hypothermia and exposure.
Garowe and Bossaso airports operational as of 13 November.
Thousands of livestock are reported dead as a consequence of icy rain, which was noted in the aerial assessment. FAO estimates 800,000 livestock were in the affected area. Anecdotal evidence suggests a less than 10 per cent survival rate for livestock in the hardest hit areas.
Possible disease and contamination of water sources from decaying animal remains is a major concern in the short term with restocking of herds being a medium to long term issue.
Numerous water sources have been flooded and are no longer serviceable or are contaminated.
While hard-walled structures appeared mostly intact, makeshift structures for pastoralists were conspicuously absent or just frames, likely destroyed or damaged by high winds and rains.
Coordination and assessments:
From the outset, Puntland authorities established a task force comprising key ministries, UN agencies, and NGOs, led by the Puntland Ministry of Interior, which continues to meet daily in Garowe.
Assessments by land and air were conducted on 15 and 16 November and are on-going. The health cluster on the ground identified gaps in water, shelter, food, and NFI around Dangaroyo while a joint UN and partners aerial assessment confirmed reports of major livestock losses.
Puntland authorities dispatched 32 trucks of supplies and 300 military forces to the affected areas.
340 MT of food dispatched by WFP from Bosasso to Bandarbayla, Dangaroyo, and Eyl started to arrive on 15 November. Distributi
