STORYLINE
Lebanon was affected by a heavy storm that started on Sunday 6 of January and lasted until the 9th. Heavy rain, strong wind, snow and cold temperature led to floods, loss and destruction of assets and displacements in many regions, especially affecting coastal and mountain areas.

Informal settlements, where refugees reside, were particularly affected due to weak infrastructure.

In close coordination with Inter-agency and the government, UNICEF with partners started immediate response - distributing blankets and winter clothes for children, and other supplies. As of the morning of 10th January, the humanitarians estimate that over 11,300 people, over half of them children, in more than 360 sites have been affected.

All schools have been closed due to the storm.

Humanitarians are preparing for another storm expected on Sunday, 13th January.
