I. HIGHLIGHTS/KEY PRIORITIES

- Landslides have occurred in the mountainous areas of eastern Uganda, burying three villages in Bududa District and leaving at least 80 people and over 300 missing.

- Search and rescue teams have been forced to employ shovels and hand held hoes; access constraints have prevented the deployment of more effective earth moving equipment.

- Two Government-led inter-agency assessment teams have been dispatched to the affected region targeting Bududa and Butaleja districts.
