Refugees Refuse to move ahead of Mahasen

Published on May 15, 2013 by

cyclone

Thousands of Muslim Refugees along the Burma coastline are refusing to evacuate ahead of Cyclone Mahasen.

Camps dot the Burma coastline after thousands fled Clashes between Buddhist and Muslims over the past year.  Sittwe is where the largest of the evacuations are taking place.  A low lying area near the coast where thousands of make shift homes have been set up.  Most of these “buildings” are made out of mud, cloth and wood.

But, Reuters reports that many of the residents are refusing to leave and move yet again. One resident was quoted as saying “I lost my mother and two imagesyoung daughters during the clashes between Muslims and Rakhine (Buddhists) last year. I lost everything. That’s why I pray to Allah to let all the people from here die with the storm. I don’t want to go nowhere. I’ll stay here. If I die, I want to die here.”

Even Myanmar’s Vice PresidentNyan Tun visits the internal displaced people camp in Rakhine states on Tuesday (May 14) to persuade them to relocate but many refuse to go.

The storm already taking the lives of nearly 100 people yesterday in a boat capsizing. In Sri Lanka seven deaths due to heavy rains was reported.  These low lying camps and the people that live in them if they stay in place ahead of this storm they will be putting themselves at a serious risk. Cyclone Mahasen is not a severe storm by any means. And most first world countries would laugh at this storm as a minor nuisance. But these villages where the storm is headed will under severe threat.

What makes Mahansen so dangerous

Published on May 13, 2013 by

“Cyclone Mahansen continues to be only forecasted to become a equivalent of a weak typhoon before landfall in Bangladesh on Thursday. To many around the world and especially first world countries this sounds like a gentle breeze to ride out in the coming days.

Yet many of those living in low lying areas in Myanmar this storm is a very real and serious threat.   Nearly 130,000 people are living in makeshift camps near the coastal plains of the country after fleeing violence between clashes Buddhist and Muslims in western portions of the country. These cyclonecamps are not made to withstand cyclone, even a weak one. And this pending storms brings the threat of a disaster if it is to hit of these refugee camps as a Severe Cyclonic System.

At this time the worst of the storm is forecasted to stay west but with the pending track still uncertain. Even if the was to miss the refugee camps a heavy rainfall would still bring harsh conditions for those who make the area home.  We hope for the safety of those ahead of the storm.

It would be easy to say this area is used to deadly storms. In 2008 the country suffered 180,000 casualties when a cyclone hit the Irrawaddy River delta.  In 1991 a cyclone hit a little farther north in Bangledesh resulting in the deaths of 350,000 people.

This article comes from https://chittagong.recovers.org/ , if you need help or wish to help the recovery efforts from this storm please click the link.

CYCLONE MAHASEN Storm surge inundates 25 Patuakhali villages STAR ONLINE REPORT At least 25 villages of four upazilas of Patuakhali were flooded Wednesday night as storm surge washed away flood control dams with the Cyclone Mahasen approaching the coastal region.

Many of the marooned people of the villages rushed to cyclone shelters and other high lands after the high tide stormed made way into their villages stormaround 11:00pm, our Patuakhali correspondent reported.

The upazilas are: Kolapara, Golachipa, Rangabali and Dashmina.

The storm surge of at least five feet height was reported in the villages.

Meanwhile, the Patuakhali town went under at least four feet of tide early morning as a drizzle continues to pour since Wednesday evening.

Our correspondent reported that the local Met office recorded a 60kph wind in the town last night. It is 70kph in Kuakata, a popular tourist destination.

Some of the inundated people have yet to leave their houses for safer place.

UN OCHA Flash Update 6, Cyclone Mahasen, Bangladesh and Myanmar

“Tropical Cyclone Mahasen, which has been downgraded to a tropical storm, made landfall in Bangladesh on the morning of 16 May (local time), bringing strong winds and heavy rains to Chittagong and surrounding districts. On its current path, it will continue to move northeast from Myanmar and towards the eastern states of India. The current speed at the centre of the storm is around 80 km/h and is expected to reduce its wind speed to 55 km/h as it continues to move inland.

In Bangladesh, an estimated one million people were evacuated from 13 coastal districts in the 24-hour prior to the arrival of the storm. A tidal surge has caused floods in the districts of Barguna, Bhola, Patuakhali, Nohakhali and Laxmipur. The Government has not declared a disaster, and no request for international assistance has been received at this time.

The United Nations met this morning in Dhaka and committed to working collaboratively with the Government and to provide support where required. Humanitarian partners report they are ready to respond. While people have moved to evacuation centres, there have been some instances of resistance due to multiple factors including changes in weather conditions.

The Bangladesh Government, through its Cyclone Preparedness Programme (CPP) has broadcast pre-cyclone Public Service Announcements (PSAs), carrying preparedness messages endorsed by the Department of Disaster Management via national radio. Post-cyclone messages for affected people are on standby to be broadcast immediately after the cyclone has passed.

A distribution plan for food assistance has been developed by humanitarian agencies, to supplement Government food and cash reserves. Essential nutrition and emergency WASH supplies have been pre-positioned for approximately 43,000 households in vulnerable districts. More than 6,000 family kits and two mobile water treatment units have been transferred to Chittagong.

In Myanmar, while it appears that the storm has moved further away from Rakhine state, heavy rain is still expected. Approximately 250 staff members of humanitarian organisations are in country and remain on standby and ready to respond; a number of them with expertise in rapid assessments. Assessment teams will begin assessment of affected sites as soon as possible after the storm subsides.

Assessment teams and protection monitoring continued working today at various camps with the assistance of community leaders, religious leaders, and international aid workers to help alleviate concerns of those resistant to move.

The government estimates nearly 78,000 people from 13 townships in Rakhine State have been relocated in total. UN agencies maintain that all measures must be taken to ensure that no lives are under undue threat. Some communities continued to resist relocatation to Government buildings but were eventually persuaded to move into other nearby locations, including schools, madrasas, and with host communities.

OCHA, UNHCR and UNICEF led training sessions today for staff on inter-sectoral rapid assessment, as agencies and humanitarian partners will initiate a post-storm assessment process across Rakhine in the coming days. The assessment will address the current needs of people in the relocation sites as well as requirements for their future return. At this time, it is unclear when the relocated communities will return to their places of temporary settlement, or whether other options will be made available for some.

Although Mahasen has passed Rakhine State, it is clear that many thousands are still accommodated in areas which make them more vulnerable to the elements and this must not continue. The Government of the United Kingdom today pledged a £4.4 million (US$6.7 million) humanitarian aid package for IDPs in Rakhine State ahead of the cyclone and rainy seasons. The aid package will provide 80,000 people with access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation facilities; treatment for malnourished children; and, hygiene kits for 40,000 people.

OCHA expects to issue another Flash Update tomorrow.” – unocha
