1 HMS ILLUSTRIOUS INTSUM 02 DEC 13

2 Summary Recce parties conducted aerial and ground recces of a number of island groups to the west of Panay and on Panay itself. The areas covered were: –Panagtan Major –Panagtan Minor –Sibolon –Sibaton –Northern Calamian Islands –Maniguin, Bathatan and Malalson Islands –West Panay Islands (Culasi) –Quiniluban Island Group –Pamalican Island –Manamoc Island –Agutaya Island The majority of the islands had suffered little damage as a result of Typhoon Haiyan. There was evidence of local communities having effected repairs themselves. Of note, some of the smaller islands in the Semirara and Cuyo Islands rely on seaweed cultivation for the majority of their income and this has been badly affected by the typhoon. This has impacted their abilty to purchase essential items, such as food and materials to repair the seaweed beds. Silad in the Quiniluban Group (Cuyo Islands) was identified as requiring further assessment. The population reported families with no money and no ability feed themselves without assistance from other families or NGOs.

3 IndicatorsAssessment Comment and Estimates SigModMinNil The recce team visited Panagtan Major. The HLS used by the recce team was on the beach at UP This is suitable for a Lynx, but at high tide would not be accessible. There was a poss HLS IVO the school in the middle of the island, but again is only suitable for a lynx. The trees around the school are approximately 8ft high, therefore along strop would be required for a VERTREP. There are approximately 1000 people on the Island and 6 are reported as missing since the Typhoon. There are approximately 250 houses, 20 – 30% of which were severely damaged by the typhoon and in need of new roofs and some structural work. Locals have commenced this repair work already. Some aid has been received by the island, although they could not confirm what that constituted, however, some new tarp was seen on houses and some new looking tin was also being used to repair roofs. Their livelihood revolves around fishing. Mst of their boats were still in good working order and at the time of the recce most were out fishing. There were also people out in the shallow waters fishing with nets. The shops appeared well stocked and open. The school was open and operational. Their were no apparent health issues on the island. J 2 ASSESSMENT The islanders were not in distress and did not require much assistance. They are able to sustain themselves with supplies delivered from the larger islands and their ability to fish has not been affected. It is assessed that the only possible aid requirement is to provide shelter packs, tarp and tools to help repair the 70 – 75 damaged homes.

4 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil The recce team visited the two Panagton Minor Islands There are 700 people per island. There were approximately 300 houses per island, about 60% of these had been damaged and were deemed uninhabitable, the rest received minor to moderate damage but were still occupied; repairs have already started. The leader of the two islands stated that their major concern was shelter. Their main source of income revolves around sea weed farming and fishing. The sea weed crops had been destroyed by the Typhoon, however they have managed to replant a significant amount. Rope was however in short supply and they required more to increase the sea weed crops to their pre typhoon levels. Up to 150 fishing boats were damaged but have already been repaired and are now serviceable. The remaining 187 are damaged and awaiting repairs. Tools and materials were required to speed up this process. Food and water was not a major concern, they were receiving stores from the main islands twice a week and the shops appeared well stocked. However the leader did say that money was a concern as they were not generating as much income after the damage to the seaweed crop. The islanders stated that their rice barge was destroyed in the typhoon, they now rely on the main islands barges, which has increased the price of rice. There is no school on the island, the children go to school on Panagtan Major which was open. J 2 ASSESSMENT This island is self sustaining but has received moderate damage to houses. The loss of the seaweed crop has meant funds are beginning to reduce, however, the shops are well stocked and they are getting regular food deliveries. The health issues are minor and no health assistance was given. Rope and twine were delivered to assist in planting more seaweed. Shelter is the major concern and shelter packs and tools were delivered to the island but no further assistance was required. The community was well co-ordinated with tools being held communally and signed for by people who wished to use them. No further assistance is required from LUST.

5 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil The recce team visited Sibolon Island. 5 x bags of tarp delivered for the school roof. Aprox 300 homes are on the island. No Damage observed, however, 4 houses had been destroyed but have been rebuilt. Large numbers of fishing boats were observed and no significant damage reported. No Health issues were reported. J 2 ASSESSMENT This island is self sufficient and does not require any assistance.

7 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil An aerial and land recce was conducted of the northern Calamian islands. All houses were constructed of wood with a thatched roof. In the south of Tara island there were approximately 30 houses with 20% damaged. 11 fishing boats were seen with no obvious damage, although little fishing activity was observed. There was very little debris observed and all paths were clear. In the south of Tara island was assessed as the population centre for the islands and had the only buildings with concrete footings and corrugated iron roofs. The buildings with corrugated iron roofs had sustained more damage than the thatched houses (photo 1 & 2), it is assessed that this is possibly due to a combination of factors: 1. thatched roofs are relatively easy to repair, with the raw materials readily available; 2. The typhoon created less of a pressure difference amongst structures with porous thatched roofs, therefore less damage was sustained. A concrete building, assessed as either a school or community building, was observed on south Tara island (photo 1). Approximately 50% of the roof was damaged. While the church had approximately 40% of the roof missing (photo 2). There was another building with 100% of the roof missing (photo 2). Aircrew reported 10 houses each on two settlements in the north of Tara island, with less than 10% of buildings damaged. No communities were observed at Spot 4, 5 and 47. There was no community observed at spot 3, however, on the southern end of the island approximately 8 houses were observed with less than 10% of buildings damaged. The community at spot 7 had sustained the most damage. There were approximately 8 houses in total with 40% of these damaged. J 2 ASSESSMENT From the aerial recce alone there appears to be relatively little damage, however, the damage sustained to the roofs of the buildings in the south of Tara island may mean the community require some materials or assistance. It is assessed that because of the relatively minor level of damage observed the communities possibly require materials alone to affect repairs themselves.

8 12 Damage to corrugated iron roofs.

9 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil The recce team conducted an aerial recce of Maniguin, Bathatan and Malalson Islands. Maniguin island - No damage was observed. Bathatan island consisted of approximately 700 houses less than 5% of which appeared to have some minor damage to the roofs. Roads were open and traffic moved freely. Large numbers of fishing vessels were seen around the island, and no damaged boats were observed on the shore. Malalson, population around 1000 – 1500, with approximately dwellings. Less than 5% of the buildings were damaged, some had tarp on the roofs but no significant damage seen. J 2 ASSESSMENT It is assessed that these islands do not require assistance.

10 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil The recce team conducted an aerial recce of Panay west IVO Culasi The more populated coastal areas had less than 5% damage with only a few houses having tarp on the roof. No other damage was seen. All transport routes around the area were open and traffic was moving freely. There was significant fishing activity off the coast, with no damaged boats. The small hamlets further inland did not appear to have received any storm damage. All routes to these hamlets were open with traffic moving freely. The rivers were at what appeared to be a normal level with no obvious flooding or damage. All bridges seen over the rivers were in good condition and were operational. J 2 ASSESSMENT The whole area received only a minimal amount of storm damage. It is assessed that no assistance is required.

11 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil The recce team, including DfID representation, conducted an aerial and ground recce of Algerciras, Madit and Silad islands. Throughout the islands fishing and Seaweed cultivation was observed. The communities reported the typhoon had caused significant damage to the ropes and twine on which the seaweed is cultivated. Seaweed cultivation was reported as the main source of income with fishing forming only a small proportion. As a result this has had an adverse impact on their income. All communities estimated it would take 3-4 months for the seaweed to return to normal levels. Two of the islands, Al and Silad, reported that fish catches had reduced since Typhoon Haiyan. All communities reported that their main source of water is from Quiniluban. All communities reported visits by the Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) to deliver rice. It was reported that deliveries are usually 2kg per family. In Algerciras there were approximately 120 houses with less than 10% damaged. The community reported that they are still able to purchase rice from Mindoro and expressed no concern about food security in the short term. In Madit there 280 houses with less than 10% of houses damaged. The community reported that they are still able to purchase rice from Mindoro and expressed no concern about food security in the short term. They reported that fishing had not been affected by the typhoon. The roof of the day care centre had been damaged, approximately 30% of the roof is missing. Silad appeared to be the worst affected of the islands visited. While there was little damage to the 145 houses they reported that some families had already run out of money and were unable to buy food, they were reliant on other families. They reported that they had been visited by the MAF on 29 Nov. However, in general the moral appeared lower and they reported that there were concerned about food in the short term. J 2 ASSESSMENT It is recommended that a further assessment is required to determine whether any food aid is required on Silad.

13 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil The recce team including DfID representation conducted an aerial recce of Manamoc island. This was a relatively well developed island with houses, compared to the surrounding islands proportionally more had concrete footings and corrugated iron roofs. No damage was observed. A school, power lines and rice paddies were all observed on the western side of the island. Two communications masts were present on the island, both with microwave dishes. J 2 ASSESSMENT No assistance required.

14 IndicatorsAssessmentComment and Estimates SigModMinNil A recce team, including DfID representation, visited Agutaya island and met with a municpal representative. Village visited in the Barangay of ‘Bangcal’. Municipal official stated that the islands of Concepcion and Algerciras to the north (in the Quiniluban Group) still required assistance. This is not the conclusion drawn after today’s recce of Alerciras (see previous slide). Minimal damage was reported. All villagers seen appeared healthy and positive. Crops were reported as unaffected and livestock healthy. Fishing was continuing. Children were in school. J 2 ASSESSMENT This island had no visible damage and it is assessed, and confirmed by the municipal official, that it requires no assistance.
