Emnati Goes To The Same Region Of Madagascar Already Devastated By Batsirai

Must Read

Yesterday, tropical Cyclone was moving south-west, towards central Madagascar. On 21 February at 0.00 UTC, its centre was located 490 km east of Toamasina City (central-eastern Madagascar) with maximum sustained winds of 190 km/h.

This is the fourth system of the season after Ana, Batsirai and Dumako. The Malagasy – who are repairing the damage as best they can – are going to suffer others. International solidarity is at work.

The predicted trajectory of Emnati leads this cyclone straight to the same region of Madagascar already devastated by Batsirai.

This is the only way to ensure the sustainability of the Creative City concept, which is based on the concept of the Creative City model. This is the only way to ensure that the people of the region are able to live in harmony with their environment. France has brought 87 tons of emergency aid.

Emnati - Madagascar

The Interdepartmental Crisis EMNATI Management Operational Centre (COGIC) reports 25,800 families affected by water disruptions and 7,000 others without power supply in La Réunion.

EMNATI is expected to continue moving south-west and it will make landfall in an area between the cities of Vatomandry and Farafangana (central-southern Madagascar) on the morning of 22 February, with maximum sustained winds up to 180 km/h, as reported by Meteo Madagascar. Later on 22 February, it will cross southern Madagascar.

On 21-22 February, heavy rain and strong winds are forecast across most parts of central and southern Madagascar (under yellow warnings for cyclones) and La Réunion.

Furthermore, following the passage of DUMAKO over central-northern Madagascar on 15 February, 14 people have died, more than 4,300 were displaced and almost 9,560 affected.

The repeated cyclones were another argument of President Andry Rajoelina in front of the Europeans in Brussels last week to claim the compensation promised in the fight against the effects of climate change.
