Key points:

  • At least 883 houses have been damaged by the cyclone and 5,630 have been damaged due to floodwater, particularly in Antalaha district.

  • Food availability is a challenge to affected populations in remote areas cut off by damaged roads. 100% of the crops and rice fields in Antalaha and Sambava have been submerged and destroyed.

  • Access to drinking water in Antahala district is limited. The overflowing of rivers in Antananarivo is likely to contaminate drinking water.
