Le réseau routier à Madagascar est très limité. il pose généralement de nombreuses contraintes pour le transport de personnes et de marchandises dans certaines régions notamment celles affectées par le cyclone ENAWO. L'accès aux zones frappées par le cyclone reste difficile en raison des routes bloquées - par des arbres ou la montée des eaux - et des infrastructures endommagées, y compris les ponts et ferries, ce qui limite la capacité des organisations humanitaires à répondre aux besoins des populations affectées.
UNE VUE D'ENSEMBLE DE LA CRISE
Echelle et magnitude du cyclone
Le cyclone tropical intense Enawo, cyclone de catégorie 4 sur l'échelle de Saffir-Simpson, a touché terre dans la région de SAVA (Sambava-Andapa-Vohémar-Antalaha) au nord-est de Madagascar le 7 mars 2017, puis s’est déplacé en tant que dépression tropicale vers le sud en suivant la forme d’un arc traversant le centre et le sud du pays, avant de quitter le pays dans la matinée du 10 mars.
Population et zones affectées
• Tropical Cyclone Enawo affects approximately 434,000 people in Madagascar
• USAID assists cyclone-affected populations in Madagascar and Mozambique
• Food security conditions in Southern Africa likely to improve when April/May harvests begin
Good performance of the current growing season (Oct 2016 – April 2017) is critical for Southern Africa, after suffering from two consecutive droughts induced by a long lasting El Niño event which led to unprecedented levels of food insecurity.
As of 17 March, over 433,000 people have been affected by Tropical Cyclone Enawo, which made landfall on the northeastern coast of Madagascar between 7-10 March.
Over 81 people have been killed, 253 wounded, and 247,000 displaced. Floods have damaged health facilities, leaving over 250,000 people without access to health services. An estimated 175,000 people do not have access to safe potable water, and water-borne diseases are on the rise.
On March 21, the Government of Japan decided to provide emergency relief goods (tents and plastic sheets) to the Republic of Madagascar, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in response to the serious damage caused by the recent cyclone.
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.
