On March 8, Enawo weakened from an “intense” to a “moderate” tropical storm...The northeastern Sava region has sustained significant damage to housing and agriculture. Antalaha port is inaccessible and more than half of the city’s homes have been destroyed...Farahalana commune is flooded by Lohoko River, with half of all housing under water....[I]n the Analanjirofo region,...more than 10,000 people are displaced. (Govt/UN HCT, 9 Mar 2017)
As at 12 March, the National Office for the Management of Risks and Crises (BNGRC) reported 295,950 people to have been affected by the cyclone, including 84,660 who remain displaced. The number of deaths due to the storm has risen to 50 with 20 people missing and 195 injured. These figures are based on information received to date and may continue to change as more areas previously inaccessible are able to be reached...The initial technical evaluation of the assessment conducted by the BNGRC and participating agencies suggests that humanitarian activities should be prioritized in Maroantsetra, where approximately 40 per cent of the population has been displaced by flooding; in Antalaha, where the cyclone made landfall and where significant damage due to high winds as well as the rain-fed rapid rise in water levels; and in the capital, Antananarivo, where 27,104 people have been displaced by flooding and flood waters have in the past proven to persist longer than in other areas.

DUBAI, 12th March 2017 (WAM) -- Under the direction of Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, around 100 tonnes of relief and survival items, organised by Dubai’s International Humanitarian City, IHC, has departed from Dubai International Airport to Madagascar to assist with recovery efforts following Cyclone Enawo, the strongest to strike the island nation in 13 years.
This Emergency Appeal is being issued on a preliminary basis and seeks 892,325 Swiss francs with an initial loan of 150,000 Swiss francs from the Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Malagasy Red Cross Society (MRCS) in delivering assistance and support to 25,000 people affected by Cyclone Enawo over eight months. The response will focus on the following areas of interventions: health, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); and shelter (including non-food items).
The remnants of Intense Tropical Cyclone Enawo exited Madagascar on the morning of Friday 10 March 2017. The storm traversed nearly the length of the island over two days, affecting communities from north to south across Madagascar’s eastern and central regions.
Wind damage and widespread flooding in cyclone-affected parts of the north-east, and heavy rains and widespread flooding in eastern, central and south-eastern parts of the country has been recorded.
Tropical storm ENAWO-17 has formed in the Southern Indian Ocean north-east of Madagascar. It is moving south-west and is currently foreseen to make land fall early 7 March on the north-eastern coast of Madagascar as a very intense cyclone, with extreme rainfalls and maximum storm surge height of one me ter.
ENAWO-17 is predicted to have a high humanitarian impact based on the maximum sustained wind speed, the potentially affected population (up to one million people ) and their vulnerability.
◾According to the situational report of 11 March from the Bureau National de Gestion des Risques et des Catastrophes (BNGRC) of Madagascar the national authorities have dropped the alert level for Grand Tana from red to yellow.
◾The report also indicates, as of 11 March 15.00 p.m. local time: 50 fatalities, 20 persons missing, 183 injured and 110 693 persons displaced.

Cyclone Enawo is wreaking havoc across Madagascar: towns and cities flooded; houses, schools, hospitals and critical infrastructure destroyed; and thousands of people displaced. Power outages are widespread in affected areas.
This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over Maroantsetra area, Analanjirofo region in Madagastcar as observed from the TerraSAR-X radar image acquired on 08 March 2017 and the Radarsat-2 image acquired on 04 May 2014. Several zones seem to be inundated and have experienced an increase of standing waters. These zones are mainly agricultural and/or swamps around the town of Maroantsetra. These waters seem to be the results of the recent heavy rain related also to the cyclone ENAWO-17 which made landfall the 07 March 2017.
Tropical Cyclone Enawo continued to move through central Madagascar on a southern track as NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites gathered imagery and data on the powerful storm.
On 7 March, Tropical Storm Enawo-17 made landfall on north-east Madagascar as a very intense tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of around 231 km/h (143 mph). Wind gusts in the area may have been considerably higher. Several deaths are reported and, although Enawo has weakened to a tropical storm, it is moving slowly south-west through the country, bringing heavy rains and therefore risk of flooding/landslides.
