Where is the center? The cloud center inland or the deep convection offshore?

Fanelli, whose center of low layer Madagascar should leave within a few hours in the resort on the Indian Ocean between the cities of Tolagnaro Sandravinany and left a heavy burden on the region of Menabe.

I do not tonight on the details of damage but they are considerable, are all evidence shows state of desolation and appocalypse.

Morondava is under water more than 80% of its surface.

Cities such as Belo, Ankober Ankevo or destroyed more than 60%

IT IS NOT UNLIKELY THAT THIS SYSTEM REGAIN TEMPORARILY MODERATE TROPICAL
STORM STATUS. LIMITANT FACTOR ARE COOLER SST (NO HEAT CONTAIN SOUTH OF
27S), SOME WESTERLY MODERATE VERTICAL WINDSHEAR THAT COULD BE GENERATE BY
THE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONNED MID-LAT TROUGH, AND THE ARRIVAL OF SOME
MID-LEVEL DRY AI

Cyclone destroys 100s of homes

Antananarivo - The Indian Ocean island of Madagascar was on Thursday picking up the pieces after tropical Cyclone Fanele whipped across its western half, destroying hundreds of homes and dousing the area with torrential rains, causing flooding.

The Western resort of Morondava, which has a population of about 80 000, and the surrounding towns were 80% destroyed, the regional administrator, Mamy Elise Andriamasiarison, said.

Fanele slammed into Madagascar in the early hours of Wednesday morning at wind speeds of up to 260km/h.

In Morondava, one person was reported killed and 27 injured, the Midi Madagasikara newspaper reported.

About 3&mnbsp;000 people were left homeless after their homes were partially or fully destroyed and were being accommodated in schools, churches, the local hospital or Red Cross shelters, the report said.

A number of public buildings, including schools and administration offices, in Morondava also suffered extensive damage. Most of the town, which is famous for its Baobab (Africa's "upside-down" tree) Avenue, was still under water.

Power and water supplies to the town have been cut.

"We spent the whole night under a sturdy desk," Lova Jeanne, a mother from Morondava told one newspaper.

Fanele weakened on Wednesday as it passed over the southern highlands before turning back towards the Indian Ocean on Thursday. - Sapa-dpa

Yeah, I'd say it is extratropical now as the deep convection is almost gone.

Source: United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs - Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN)

Date: 22 Jan 2009


JOHANNESBURG , 22 January 2009 (IRIN) - Emergency assessment teams are scrambling to get an indication of the damage in Madagascar after tropical storm 'Eric' and cyclone 'Fanele' hit the Indian Ocean island in quick succession this week.

Fanele struck the western coast of Madagascar in the early hours of January 21, near the town of Morondava, according to local authorities, destroying buildings, flooding large areas and cutting off thousands of people.

On 19 January, "Eric affected 1,960 people, damaging 1,652 [buildings, mostly homes], caused one death and left 27 injured and 992 people without shelter," Dia Styvanley Soa, spokeswoman for the National Office for Natural Disasters Preparedness (BNGRC), told IRIN. The storm skirted the eastern coast of the world's fourth largest island with wind speeds of around 100km/h.

A helicopter has been dispatched to survey affected areas and authorities fear the worst as more information trickles in: "Fanele was definitely more intense than Eric and the damage it caused is very [severe]. The chief of the region of Menabe [where Morondava is situated] said Fanele entered in the morning and stayed for more than four hours - Morondava is destroyed by 80 percent," Soa said.

Fanele made landfall from the Mozambique Channel as a category 3 cyclone and swept through the southern part of Madagascar, gradually decreasing to a tropical storm before exiting to the Indian Ocean.

Not caught off-guard

With relief efforts already underway, Colonel Jean Rakotomalala, Executive Secretary of the BNGRC, stressed the importance of Madagascar's recent investments in disaster preparedness. The focus has shifted from being reactive, and limited to response and recovery after an event, to a more comprehensive approach centred on preparedness.

"We can see the payoff of prepositioning stocks ahead of the cyclone season," Rakotomalala said in a statement on 21 January. "This has made it possible to help victims immediately, in anticipation of more assistance from [other areas].

Besides prepositioning relief items, "We have given more responsibility to the regions by developing regional contingency plans. It's a tool for them to know what to do within 24 and 48 hours after a catastrophe," Soa said.

The BNGRC and its partners - UN agencies, NGOs and civil society organisations - also conducted emergency simulation exercises in various parts of the country.

"We have prepared ourselves well ... the training and sensitisation of people [at local level] has continued, but we also know that situation can be beyond our capacity."

Not out of the ordinary

Around 70 percent of Madagascar's population live on less than a dollar a day and extreme weather events are part of the island's history. The cyclone season usually kicks off in December and runs through April, when storms hit some of the poorest regions in the country.

In 2008 over 100 people died when Madagascar was hit by cyclones Fame, Jokwe and Ivan. The powerful winds, heavy rains and flooding affected over 340,000 people, of whom 190,000 lost their homes.

2007 was the worst year on record, with six cyclones affecting nearly half a million people, mainly in the central and northern parts of the island; in the parched south drought has persisted for several years.

Temperatures in the Indian Ocean are well above average, according to the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and meteorologists are predicting that 2009 may be a particularly bad year.

Plusieurs agglomérations à moitié inondées, des centaines de logements détruits, 2600 sans-abri, un mort et des dizaines de blessés : tel est le bilan du passage du cyclone tropical Fanele dans le centre ouest de Madagascar. Selon les responsables de l'Office national de gestion des catastrophes, repris jeudi par les quotidiens locaux, de fortes pluies et des vents violents se sont abattus sur la zone côtière autour de la localité touristique de Morondava. En vertu des premiers chiffres fournis par les services de secours, le passage du cyclone dans la ville a détruit ou provoqué l'effondrement de 80% des bâtiments. Des centres d'accueil ont été aménagés dans les églises, les écoles et les hôpitaux de plusieurs villages pour y accueillir les sans-abri. Les dirigeants de l'Office national de gestion des catastrophes ont indiqué que des opérations ont été mises en œuvre pour rétablir l'eau courante et l'électricité dans 80.000 habitations. Après s'être déplacé de mercredi à jeudi vers une région montagneuse, située dans le Sud de Madagascar, Fanele a regagné l'Océan Indien.

DIENT WITH SUBTROPICAL HIGH PRESSURES.
MOST OF THE AVAILABLE NWP MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE
SOUTHEASTWARD FORECAST TRACK AND THE SLOWDOWN IN THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS,
BEFORE THE SYSTEM MERGES WITH A MID LATITUDES TROUGH AT THE END OF THE
FORECAST. WINDS SHOULD GRADUALLY DECREASE ALONG THE FORECAST TRACK, AS
THE SYSTEM FILLS UP.


THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM, WHICH IS NOW MONITORED WITH THE
GMDSS BULLETINS FQIO20.
