Intense Tropical Cyclone Enawo struck north-eastern Madagascar on the morning of March 7, travelling at 200 to 300 km/hour. On March 8, Enawo weakened to a moderate tropical storm and exited Madagascar on Friday 10 March 2017, after traversing nearly the length of the island over two days. Enawo affected communities across Madagascar’s eastern and central regions-approximately 34,377 people were affected.
This report is written following a very quick (3 hours) assessment one displacement sites and sites of origin in Antananarivo, on 15 March approximately one week after Cyclone Enawo.
Formé dans l'océan Indien, le cyclone Enawo (catégorie 4) a frappé le 7 mars 2017 les côtes nord-est de Madagascar, dans la région d'Antalaha, accompagné de pluies diluviennes et de vents soufflant en rafales jusqu'à 290 km/h.
Il a le lendemain touché Antananarivo, la capitale située en plein centre de l'île, avant d'être reclassé par les services météorologiques en "dépression tropicale" puis de quitter le territoire malgache.

This brief summarizes FEWS NET’s most forward-looking analysis of projected emergency food assistance needs in FEWS NET coverage countries. The projected size of each country’s acutely food insecure population is compared to last year and the recent five-year average. Countries where external emergency food assistance needs are anticipated are identified. Projected lean season months highlighted in red indicate either an early start or an extension to the typical lean season.
Large rainfall surpluses remain across broad areas of Southern Africa
Africa Weather Hazards
Since late December, enhanced seasonal rainfall has resulted in large moisture surpluses and several floods. The risk of additional flooding remains high throughout Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, and southwestern Tanzania.
Below-average and erratic rainfall since December has resulted in strong moisture deficits, low soil moisture, and poor crop prospects across parts of northeastern Mozambique.
Madagascar’s “forgotten crisis” continues. The January 2017 nutrition assessment of children under 59 months indicated a deterioration as compared to the last quarter of 2016, as expected given the current period of the lean season. Current estimates for 2017 are that 35,000 children will suffer from severe acute malnutrition (21,750 alone in the South).
Antananarivo, 17 March 2017 – A cargo flight carrying 79 tons of humanitarian supplies has arrived in the capital of Madagascar as part of the UN Children’s Fund’s (UNICEF) ongoing response to Cyclone Enawo which caused significant damage in the northeastern part of the country and has affected much of the rest of the world’s fourth-largest island.
