Lake-I, Port Loyola, Albert Divisions Most Affected by Hurricane Lisa

The National Emergency Management Organization will use the data gathered by DANA to come to the official value of the damages caused to families across the affected areas. NEMO’s final report will then be submitted to members of the international community who are willing to assist in the relief efforts. So, in the event your family was affected and your losses were not assessed, you can contact the NEMO hotline to submit your information. Hendy also spoke with us about the areas that were most affected.

“I can give you an example where we had a lot of destruction and a whole sector of houses that didn’t get damaged at all, not wind, not any kind of structural damage and then behind them you had total destruction. So, we can’t really say it is a clean sweep. We had some areas that were not affected that much. But, what we can say is that in the Lake Independence and Port Layola, and the Albert is that we had a lot of flood damages and that is normal given the storm surge.”

“What do you say to persons who say to persons who may see this and say, unu never reach my house and I get damaged. Nobody come to me and I have been at home.”

“I will see, quite possibly we did go and you weren’t there. But still use the NEMO hotlines, all the hotlines available to you and try to get those calls in because daily we are doing that. We are collecting information on a daily basis. We are cross-checking it with our data base to make sure that there is limited to no duplication, is the goal so that we can capture everyone. I mean in these times, being without electricity is an issue for some people; I can’t image what it is like being without somewhere to live.”
