Disaster overview: "The coordination team
suggests that there are three broad geographic areas.
The
team has conducted
field trips to
two of these ‘typical’ areas. Many houses in the areas visited are of timber construction but there are
also masonry
and semi masonry buildings.

Chin State: Mountainous
area severely affected by landslide
and
access issues.
Many
households
whose houses
were destroyed or are now in unsafe locations
are obliged to find
temporary accommodation
until new locations
are identified and support for rebuilding is
available.
Because houses were damaged by ground instability almost
all affected
houses will need to rebuilt
elsewhere.
Lack of useable roads is making access to affected villages
for
assessment and response extremely difficult.

Central plains: River flat areas where fast moving and deep flood waters have damaged houses,
destroyed
cropping land and food,
made some locations unsafe and deposited deep mud. Some
households
and complete
villages will need to relocate and others are waiting for the dry season for mud to dry out.
These
households
are
also obliged to wait in less than adequ
ate temporary conditions. As well
as this some houses are damaged and
uninhabitable. Deep mud is restricting access.

Delta area: The coordination team will visit this area in next days to assess the general
conditions but
government and anecdotal
reporting
suggests
extensive shelter damage...
