TROPICAL DEPRESSION SITUATION REPORT

1.0 GENERAL
The entire state Dismac operation is now shifting to the relief and rehabilitation phase with
emphasis and effort centered in the timely provision of one month relief food supplies to
flood victims in the western and central divisions. Ministries responsible of essential
services are putting every resource together in the state quest to restore back disrupted
service to the general public at the quickest time possible such as water, roads while
power supply and telecommunication sectors have been restored.

The weather pattern has improved tremendously resulting in the scaling down of dismac
operation in the Northern and Central division.

There is great improvement being observed in the process of ration distribution in the
western division particularly Nadi district after some changes being adopted resulting in
the decentralization of operation strategy.

However, appropriate action plan still being put in place by the ministry of health as alert
of epidemic outbreak alert is being closed monitored in affected areas around Fiji.

2.0 SITUATION

Forecast to midnight tomorrow for the Fiji group: cloudy periods with few showers over
most places. Afternoon or evening thunderstorms about the main islands. Moderate north
to northeast winds

3.0 SIGNIFICANT EVENTS RECORDED AT DIVISIONAL DISMAC CENTERS
AROUND THE COUNTRY.


3.01 WESTERN DIVISION

The priority at the moment is the restoration of essential services and supply of food to
worst affected areas. This in addition to the restoration of essential services like water,
power, roads/crossings and health services.
The total commitment in terms of DISMAC operational cost( refreshment, fuel, oil and
stationery, food ration to evacuation centers and first round of food relief program
amounts to $75,094.00 whilst the total estimated cost of damages to infrastructure, social
and economic sectors worth $119,252,812.00
Initial Damage Assessment teams have been deployed to carry out surveys to ascertain
the much needed assistance that can be given to Communities.
The Divisional DISMAC Western Chairperson, Commissioner Western Division, has
emphasised on all HOD's and Agencies to submit quickly their reports on needs
assessment that can be considered with Donor Agencies.



3.02 EVACUATION
CENTRES

There are 08 Evacuation Centers that are still operational with the number of
evacuees standing at 277 in figures. Details are as follows:
Centers
No of Evacuation
Centers
No of Evacuees
Lautoka 2 40
Ba 4
205
TOTAL 06 245

3.03 HEALTH
SECTOR

Due to the continuous heavy rain and flooding, safety and disease outbreak are the main
risks in the current situation. The water disruptions pose a major health hazard as people
will turn to consume contaminated water when captured rainwater runs dry.
Outbreak of Chicken pox and diarrhea cases had been reported at Tavua & Nadi
Hospitals. Two teams from Suva are in the West to assist in the Disease control and
water purification.
The Western Heath is now concentrating on disease control. The first phase concentrated
on the evacuation Centres through mobile medical services at these Centres. The second
phase is now on disease and the RFMF personnel's are assisting the MOH Vector
Spraying teams involved in the Spraying exercises for Nadi and Ba areas. The health
department has received the medical supplies donated by the Korean Government. Spoilt
food items from Ba are being disposed at Lautoka Rubbish Dump.

There has been 3 case of Leptospirosis ? 1 from Sigatoka and 2 from Nadi reported. The

3.05 TOURISM

Tourists continue to arrive into the country even though there had been fears of reduction
due to the interpretation of the state of Emergency.


3.06 BUSINESS COMMUNITY

Nadi and Ba towns suffered major devastation that will take time to recover. Cleaning of
shops and removal of debris and slits left in the wake of the floods will take massive effort
by the business community to deal with. This would take several weeks to complete.
Losses sustained to the towns of Nadi, Sigatoka and Ba is estimated to be in millions of
dollars. This is in addition to loss of business and production. The National Fire Service
has been approached and assisted in the cleaning up of Nadi, Ba and Sigatoka towns.
Restriction in movement ia in place with police monitoring people's movement in towns for
the safety of tourists and security of shops and the business community.

Due to the high damage costs sustained by Ba and Nadi towns, recommendation would
be placed forth to government to provide financial assistance to their infrastructural
rehabilitation.

The Ba and Nadi Chamber of Commerce reported physical damages sustained by the
two towns are estimated at costs of $95 million dollars.

Nadi town: $50 million Ba town: $45 million

3.33 RATION DISTRIBUTION TO BOARDING SCHOOLS

44 boarding schools in the west have been considered for supply of food ration. These
schools rely on supplies from village gardens. Unfortunately the recent spate of bad
weather that caused extensive flooding in the Western Division virtually destroyed all
crops causing hardships and shortage of supply to meet daily needs.

6.00 CONCLUSION

Priority area at the moment is the restoration of essential services and timely supply of
food ration to worst affected areas.

The only infrastructural change is the disruption of water flow from last night at most Nadi,
Lautoka and Ba areas due to consequential massive landslide at vaturu dam. However,
teams of engineers are working around the clock to get the water supply restored in
affected areas within 48 hours.

The weather tends to improve tremendously in most parts of the country, but low lying
areas are again reminded and forewarned of the unfavorable weather forecast as
predicted by the FMS. Operation at the DISMAC Centre continues as normal throughout
the reporting period.
