President Jokowi arrived in Pidie Jaya this morning at 7:30am to look at damages and visit the earthquake victims in the hospital and the shelters for the relocated families.
A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Indonesia’s Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam province at 05.03am local time on 7 December 2016. Indonesia’s national disaster management agency (BNPB) has reported that 97 people have died and more than 600 have been injured. Around 200 buildings have either collapsed or are heavily damaged. The most heavily affected district is Pidie Jaya, particularly the 4 sub-districts – total population 104,430 (2015) – of Bandar Baru, Trienggadeng, Bandar Dua and Meureudu (district capital).
Singapore, 8 December 2016 - Singapore Red Cross (SRC) will commit S$50,000 for relief items to support the disaster response efforts for the 6.4 magnitude earthquake that struck near the province of the Pidie Jaya District in Aceh, Indonesia. The funds will support the search, rescue and retrieval efforts by the Indonesian Red Cross - Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI), which is working with local government agencies to provide immediate assistance to affected people.
The Government of Indonesia through the BNPB is coordinating the response efforts involving at least 1,300 personnel on the ground. The National Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) is leading the search, rescue and retrieval operations with support from police and military personnel.
This bulletin is issued for information only, and reflects the current situation and details available at this time. The Indonesian Red Cross – Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI) – has analyzed, with the support of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), that available information points toward significant humanitarian needs. A scaled-up response which will require financial support from the IFRC international disaster response mechanism is envisioned.
FOREWORD BY THE HUMANITARIAN COORDINATOR
Summary of major revisions made to emergency plan of action:
Revisions in the EPOA were that additional funds were made available for a vehicle to support the RDRT’s mission, since the vastness of the affected area was greater than initially planned.
• Más de 1.4 millones de personas en necesidad de asistencia humanitaria en Cuba y Haití, tras el paso del huracán Matthew.
• 12.5 millones de personas afectadas por desastres en 2016. La sequía y los huracanes son los principales desastres.
• Seis meses después del terremoto en Ecuador, US$26.9 millones han sido financiados de los $72.8 solicitados en el Llamamiento Internacional.

Thousands of people in earthquake-affected Kaikoura still don't have safe running water and must queue for portaloos.
Although water supplies have been restored in some parts of Kaikoura, sewerage infrastructure was heavily damaged in the earthquake that shook New Zealand on 14 November.
Tap water must still be boiled for three minutes or chlorinated before use. Many households are still relying on portaloos.
• An additional 13,919 people have benefitted from UNICEF WASH activities over the last reporting period, bringing the total to over 52,000 people with access to safe water in official shelters, schools and rural areas.
• UNICEF is supporting the MoE in applying its methodology for tracing children out-of-school in emergency zones (1,746 tracked so far) with the objective of including them into the national educational system.
On April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck coastal areas in northwest Ecuador causing a total of 671 deaths and widespread damage.
Six months after, the UN and IASC partners continue to support the government’s response.
Simultaneously, strategic decisions and programs shape the path to recovery.
The response to the earthquake is an opportunity to strengthen resilience through the reduction of vulnerabilities and better preparedness at a local and national level.
In Nepal Cordaid is supporting some 500 displaced families in 4 camps. They lost their houses and income after the April and May 2015 earthquakes. We provide drinking water, business skills trainings and help mountain farmers adapt to lowland agriculture.
Cramped settings, minimal facilities

Red Cross teams from all over New Zealand are responding after a series of massive earthquakes struck the centre of the country in the early hours of Monday morning. The main 7.5 magnitude earthquake near Hanmer Springs was 15km deep and felt widely throughout the country. Two people were killed and the town of Kaikoura has been cut off.
This revised Emergency Appeal modifies the original appeal to focus on the identified humanitarian needs in the recovery and reconstruction phases. As such, it eliminates outcomes that were fully completed during the emergency phase and reported on in past Operations Updates (links below). The revised budget has been reduced to 15,085,628 Swiss francs. In close coordination, the Ecuadorian Red Cross and the IFRC have extended the initial 12-month timeframe to 16 months.
As early as July 2015 concerns over access to water began to be heard from earthquake affected communities. The first issue of Open Mic Nepal highlighted comments from Gorkha and Dhading that water sources had dried up. Over time the Common Feedback Project registered more and more feedback over water supply from all of the 14 priority affected districts.
WFP started distribution under the school meals programme as the academic year began in September, providing training to the local Ministry of Education focal points. WFP currently has sufficient resources for school meals until the end of October, however without additional contributions, WFP will be forced to suspend the programme in November.

Tras seis meses del terremoto de 7,8 que azotó la región costera ecuatoriana, el plan de reconstrucción avanza con una asignación hasta la fecha de mil 500 millones de dólares para las zonas afectadas, afirmaron hoy autoridades.
The Natural Disasters Consortium (NDC) comprising IOM, FAO, UNICEF, ACTED and HANDS completed year one of its operations. During this year, the NDC responded to the 2015 floods and earthquake, launched related recovery activities, and implemented residual recovery interventions for communities affected by disasters in earlier years. Year 1 key achievements for preparedness, response and recovery are captured below:
In preparation for future disasters, the Consortium is:
