Tropical Cyclone Gita Recovery and Resilience in Samoa
Tropical Cyclone Gita passed just south of Samoa as a Category 1 cyclone on the evening of 10 February. Gita caused damage to power and water supply infrastructure leading to the disconnection of these critical services in most parts of the country. Road access around the country was disrupted due to flooding and landslides. Felled trees and uprooted crops such as banana and breadfruit trees were observed throughout the country.
ADRA is responding by assisting 2,250 households with their immediate agriculture and shelter needs in the area affected by Tropical Cyclone Gita in Samoa. This will be achieved through providing shelter repair kits, agricultural livelihood kits and community disaster risk management and build back safer training’s.
