STORYLINE:

As of 9 October, 2,010 people are known to have died, 10,700 have been seriously injured and 671 people are still missing. More than 67,000 houses have been severely damaged or destroyed by the earthquake, tsunami of liquefaction, leaving some 330,000 people without adequate shelter, while 62,400 people displaced by the disaster are staying in displacement sites with limited access to life-saving services. According to BNPB, more than 2,700 schools have been damaged, in addition to 20 heath facilities and water supply systems.

On 28 September, a series of strong earthquakes struck central Sulawesi province, the strongest a 7.4 M earthquake only 10 km deep and with its epicentre close to the provincial capital, Palu. The earthquake triggered a tsunami whose waves reached up to three metres in some areas, striking Talise beach in Palu and Donggala. The earthquakes, tsunami and resulting liquefaction and landslides have caused significant damage and loss of life in affected areas.

OCHA continues to support the National Agency for Disaster Management, BNPB, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, ASEAN’s Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre) in the coordination of incoming international assistance, coordinated assessments and information management, and coordination in the field and at the national level.

As logistical challenges are resolved, access into affected areas is improving, and the humanitarian response is being scaled up. In line with Government priorities, the UN, NGOs and Red Cross are on the ground supporting government-led efforts.

The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) is distributing hygiene kits to women, maternity kits, post-delivery kits, and newborn kits. UNFPA has also established three reproductive health tents where lifesaving antenatal, post-natal and delivery services will be offered, and have deployed a team of midwives to ensure safe deliveries.

The UN’s Children's Fund (UNICEF) and a team of social workers from the Ministry of Social Affairs are identifying separated and unaccompanied children. Initial and unofficial reports indicate a high number of separated children. Three posts have been set up to identify children who may have been separated from their families or are unaccompanied; in total 12 such posts will be established. These posts are also being used as safe spaces for children to play and recover. As of yesterday, a total of 61 unaccompanied and separated children were registered and recorded. Three children have been reunited with their families. UNICEF and its partners are also providing psychosocial support to children who have been affected by the disaster.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is providing 28,000 gallons of bottled water and 1,700 emergency shelters. IOM is also working with the Ministry of Social Affairs to run the displacement tracking matrix.

The World Food Programme (WFP) is providing logistical assistance. WFP logisticians have completed assessments of the airport, port and roads. WFP has established a Mobile Storage Unit to store aid items coming into Palu; six more will be set up next week.
