3. EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO HOUSING IN RURAL, SEMI-URBAN AND URBAN AREAS. MAJORITY OF HOUSES DESTROYED/DAMAGED ARE OF TRADITIONAL MATERIALS (WATTLE AND DAUB AND/OR ADOBE WITH THATCHED ROOF). LIFELINES AND CRITICAL FACILITIES ALSO SEVERELY AFFECTED, INCL. MAIN ROADS AND SECONDARY ROAD NETWORK, PORT FACILITIES IN NACALA PORTO, HEALTH CENTRES AND HEALTH POSTS, EDUCATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE, ELECTRICAL GENERATORS AND POWER LINES, WATER SUPPLY SYSTEMS AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS NETWORK.
