  9. 9. UNDAC ASSESSMENT TACLOBAN CITY • • The UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) team in Tacloban City reported that local government officials observed a mass grave in one area of the city. • On 11 November, the UN mobilized the Emergency Situations Ministry of the Russian Federation (EMERCOM) to provide a helicopter that can be used for assessments and staff transport. EMERCOM will also provide emergency runway lights, power generators and communication support equipment. • Access remains a significant barrier. Roundtrip travel on the 11 kilometer road that connects the airport to the city currently takes about six hours; it is the only cleared road according to UNDAC. • There are 13 evacuation centers in Tacloban City hosting about 15,000 people with the largest center (Rizal Elementary School) serving 5,000 people. People in the evacuation centers expressed desire to return home as long as they are provided with repair materials and emergency shelter to protect them from the expected rains. In the outskirts of Tacloblan City, there is still no food, no water and no electricity. The airport’s air traffic control and fuel storage facility were damaged. Only C-130 military planes are able to operate. • • Water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH), food, medicine, shelter, debris clearance, logistics and communications are immediate priorities in Tacloban City according to the Government. Assets to deliver relief goods are limited. • Communities in the coastal areas are reluctant to return due to the presence of dead bodies. Survivors assess the damage after super Typhoon Haiyan battered Tacloban city, central Philippines, Nov. 9, 2013. (VOA) Note: Limited access to impacted areas due to debris is significantly limiting the type and quality of damage information available. It is also limiting the assistance that can be made available. OCHA SITREP NO.4 (10 NOV 2013)
  10. 10. UNDAC ASSESSMENT • In western Visayas, there are significant damages to houses along the coastline from Iloilo City to Pontevedra, Capiz province. • Damage was more extensive on the northern part of Iloilo and Capiz provinces. • The road from Pontevedra to Roxas City is impassable. • Water and food is generally available and the government is conducting relief distributions. • There is no electricity and communications. • Most commercial flights in the country resumed operations. However, flights from Tacloban City, Roxas City, Busuanga and Kalibo remain suspended. • DSWD Disaster Mitigation and Response Situation Map Commercial flights to Tacloban City are not expected to resume for at least two weeks.
