Myanmar: Floods Emergency - Situation Report No. 3 (as of 11 August 2015)

from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 11 Aug 2015


  • Since mid-July, more than 1 million people have been critically affected by monsoonal floods and landslides.

  • More than 687,200 acres of farmland has been damaged. Special equipment and seeds are needed for farmers to replant.

  • While the water has receded in many areas, many roads and bridges were destroyed in the worst affected states and regions. Transportation remains a challenge for ongoing assessments and delivery of assistance.

  • A low-pressure system in the Bay of Bengal could bring strong winds and heavy rainfall to the Ayeyarwady Region and the southern coast of Rakhine State, already affected by the floods.
