  • Typhoon Kalmaegi - Sep 2014
    GLIDE number: TC-2014-000124-PHL
    Disaster type: Tropical Cyclone
    Affected countries: China, Philippines, Viet Nam

    Typhoon Kalmaegi (known as Luis in the Philippines) formed on 10 Sep 2014 over the south-western Pacific Ocean. It struck the northeast of the main Philippine island of Luzon on 14 Sep, then moved west across land before heading into the South China Sea the next day. Floods occurred mostly in the mountainous and farming northern regions of Luzon. (AFP, 15 Sep 2014) The Government was leading the response, including the distribution of food and non-food items to the affected people, and did not requested international assistance. (OCHA, 15 Sep 2014) As of 17 Sep, more than 370,000 people were affected, with 13,500 sheltering in 51 evacuation centers. The storm destroyed 211 houses and damaged another 607. (Govt, 17 Sep 2014) On 16 Sep, Kalmaegi swept past Hong Kong before making landfall on the east coast of China's Hainan island, where more than 20,000 residents had been evacuated to 24 camps, as China Meteorological Administration had an "orange" alert in place, the second-most severe in the nation's four-tier weather warning system. (AFP, 16 Sep 2014) At least seven people were killed and more than 1,000 houses collapsed. The storm affected more than 2.8 million people and caused 5.78 billion yuan (940 million U.S. dollars) in direct economic losses in agriculture, fisheries, road and water facilities in Hainan. (Xinhua, 17 Sep 2014) Kalmaegi weakened into a Tropical Depression on 17 Sept, moving over northern Vietnam with heavy rainfall. Media reported at least six people killed and another five injured in a landslide in Cao Loc district (Long Son Province), 5,000 ha of crops destroyed and 147 houses damaged.

  • Cameroon: Floods - Sep 2014
    GLIDE number: FL-2014-000121-CMR
    Disaster type: Flood, Flash Flood
    Affected countries: Cameroon

    Starting on 21 Aug 2014, heavy rainfall caused severe flooding in Bibemi Subdivision in Cameroon's North Region. Many villages were swept away by flood waters, with houses and farms destroyed, animals killed and nearly 700 families (about 3,500 people) affected, including more than 270 families whose homes were destroyed or rendered uninhabitable. A rapid assessment carried out by the Cameroon Red Cross has identified urgent needs in the areas of emergency shelter, basic household items (blankets, sleeping mats, kitchen sets etc.), food, safe water, access to proper sanitation and reduction of increased health risks. The floods have further aggravated a cholera outbreak in the same area. (IFRC, 8 Sep 2014)

VO-2014-000127-PHL
Volcano,Philippines: On 15 Sep 2014, the Philippines raised Alert Level 3 for the Mayon Volcano, indicating that the volcano is exhibiting relatively high unrest and that a hazardous eruption is possible within weeks.

EP-2014-000039-TCD
Epidemic,Chad: Chad shares an important border with Nigeria, a country in which the Ebola epidemic has already being confirmed and claimed four lives. In order to avoid the spread of the disease into its territory, the Chadian government has stopped all the aerial traffic with Nigeria. However, the border the two countries share remains uncontrolled, with people moving in and out on a daily basis. The armed conflict in the northern part of Nigeria has resulted into population movement in the region of Lac. It is the first time in history that Chad prepares for Ebola. Its population, as well as the health institutions, have no knowledge of the mode of transmission, measurement and prevention. The Ministry of Health has initiated some measures to prevent the occurrence of the disease and to prepare the response to this epidemic through: - Strengthening the epidemiological surveillance in the border areas with Nigeria - Putting in place health check point at the airport and in border control check point - Installation of tents to isolate affected persons.

TC-2014-000124-PHL
Tropical Cyclone,Philippines: Tropical Cyclone FIFTEEN formed on 10 Sep 2014 over the south-western Pacific Ocean and started moving west in the general direction of the Philippines. According to the data of 11 Sep, FIFTEEN may reach the northern Philippines on 15 Sep as a Typhoon, however the uncertainty of the forecast track/intensity is still high.
