OT-2018-000155-CMR Other Cameroon Since October 2016, the North West (NW) and South West (SW) regions of Cameroon have been experiencing social instability coupled with violence that has a negative impact on the socio-economic fabric of the country. In October 2017, the crisis escalated into an armed conflict, with various confrontations registered between armed groups and the security and defence forces. Since then, abductions and assassinations have been recorded, in addition to sporadic attacks on government institutions and civilians trapped in the cross fire. Population movement into Nigeria and other regions of Cameroon were noted as early as in January 2018, but as of 15 September 2018, the crisis took an unprecedented turn, with scores of people fleeing from these crisis-torn regions. Indeed, the armed groups circulated a note announcing that any entry and exit into and from these affected regions will be banned as of 25th September 2018 to ensure no campaign or elections holds in these regions. Presidential elections in Cameroon is set to hold on 7 October 2018 in an extremely tense socio-political context. 
FL-2018-000154-GHA Flood Ghana Since early August 2018, communities in Northern and Upper East regions of Ghana have been affected by heavy and continuous seasonal rainfalls, which was later exacerbated by the annual opening of the Bagre dam gates (located in Burkina Faso). This caused unprecedented flooding in many local communities, destroying lives and properties. The Bagre Dam spilled on the 31st of August 2018, when the dam reached its maximum spillage level at 235m on that day. However, by the 10th of September, the dam was still spilling and water level remained at the maximum level of 235m.

TC-2018-000149-PHL Tropical Cyclone Philippines Typhoon Mangkhut is currently around 1,200km east of southern Luzon (13.8 N 136.3 E), moving west at 20kph, and with maximum sustained winds of 250kph near the centre and gustiness of up to 310kph. It has been classified as a Category 5 cyclone (Super typhoon). The typhoon is expected to maintain its strength before landfall. According to forecasts, the typhoon will make landfall over Santa Ana municipality in Cagayan province between the evening of 14 September and early morning of 15 September, with Category 4 winds, before making a second landfall over the Babuyan Islands, around 25km north of Luzon landmass. The typhoon will move across the Babuyan channel, on the northern coast of Luzon, sustaining its Category 4 winds for 24 hours. Mangkhut exits PAR by 08H00, 16 September 2018. Although the eye of the storm is not likely to traverse through Luzon landmass, the strength and the size of the typhoon (700-900km wide) is expected to cause substantial damage in communities in the provinces of Apayao, Batanes, Ilocos Norte and Cagayan, and in the Babuyan Group of Islands. Around 2 million people (almost 450,000 households) live in these areas. Storm surges of 6 to 7 metres are also expected along the northern coast and across the islands, with the typhoon expected to make landfall on a high tide (more than 1 metre). Other provinces such as Isabela, Kalinga, Abra, Mountain Province and Ilocos Sur are also expected to sustain direct wind damage from the typhoon. Heavy torrential rain is also expected over these areas, which may also trigger landslides in mountain communities and flash floods particularly near rivers and major tributaries.  
VO-2018-000148-PNG Volcano Papua New Guinea On 25 August, Manam Volcano erupted, sending ash over 15km into the air. The volcano is located on Manam island, which is located 13 km off the northern coast of the country, close to Madang province. The eruption of the volcano has forced 2,000 people to be evacuated from their homes. The Government deployed a team to assess the current conditions and need for additional evacuations.

OT-2018-000146-ARM Other Armenia On 17 and 18 August 2018, a hailstorm damaged almost all yield capacity in Shirak region of Armenia.  
EP-2018-000145-DOM Epidemic Dominican Republic At the beginning of July 2018 (epidemiological week 27), the Ministry of Public Health and Epidemiology reported that the Los Pinos Health Centre (La Descubierta, Independencia) was seeing an increase in the number of patients presenting with vomiting and diarrhea from surrounding communities, which were suspected to be cases of cholera. Reports of suspected cases of cholera continued in neighboring communities, including Los Bolos, Guayabal and La Descubierta (chief of the municipality). As of 11 August 2018, 65 suspected cases of cholera have been reported (3 confirmed) in Angel Feliz (26), Los Pinos de Edén (34), La Descubierta urban area (6) and Los Bolos (2). There are multiple factors that contribute to an increased risk of acute diarrheal diseases and the spread of cholera in the affected region, including poor hygiene practices, the use of unsafe water sources for drinking and food preparation, lack of access to health services due to the affected area's remote geographical location (it can take up to eight hours to reach the affected area), community resistance to treatment and lack of financial resources for families to access health care. In addition, the communities in the upper area of the Sierra de Bahoruco's geographic location, which is adjacent to Haiti in the northern section of the Dominican Republic, has been affected by recurrent outbreaks of diarrheal diseases, thus putting the surrounding area at constant risk. The area's high vulnerability can be attributed to the regular passage of large numbers of people between Haiti and the Dominican Republic; this highly mobile population often does not seek care in the Dominican Republic before returning to Haiti (due to cultural and family ties), which could mean that the number of cases in the in the affected area exceeds current estimates. 
FL-2018-000144-PRK Flood Korea, Democratic People's Republic As of 2 September, heavy flooding is reported in North and South Hwanghae provinces. In both provinces there are 76 reported deaths, and 75 people missing. Over 9,000 people are displaced and nearly 1,800 residential buildings destroyed or damaged.

DR-2018-000141-MDG Drought Madagascar Severe drought conditions during southern Madagascar's rainy season from November 2017 to April 2018 has led to nearly dry dams in many parts of the south. This dryness has affected livestock's access to water and pastureland, which has led to poor livestock body conditions as many are subsisting on burnt cactus leaves in the absence of viable pastureland. This has similarly affected crop development, with many areas experiencing failed or near failed harvests. Only Ambovombe commune received favorably heavy rains in July that allowed some farmers to plant new maize and potato crops. 
FL-2018-000140-MLI Flood Mali Since 7th of August 2018, Mali has been affected by heavy rainfall, which further increased between the 17-19 of August, causing great damage in localities of six out of the ten regions of the country. These rains are forecasted to continue across the country until November 2018, heightening probability of increased flooding.

TC-2018-000138-PRK Tropical Cyclone Korea, Democratic People's Republic Tropical storm Soulik developed into a typhoon on Friday 18 August 2018. DPR Korea could potentially see significant impacts from Typhoon Soulik from Thursday into Friday 23-24th of August. Even though in the course of weakening, Soulik could still remain a dangerous typhoon and bring life-threatening conditions. Heavy rainfall spreading across the Korean Peninsula may lead to flash flooding and mudslides across the rugged terrain.

TC-2018-000136-LAO Tropical Cyclone Lao People's Democratic Republic Typhoon Bebinca led to flooding in northern Laos, with impacts also felt in the south of the country. Heavy and consistent rain since 13 August has led to rising river levels in Attapeu province, where the hydro-electric dam collapsed less than a month ago. This is causing flooding and restricting access to Sanamxay, hampering the delivery of aid to areas affected by the dam collapse. Authorities are closely monitoring the level of the Mekong River and its tributaries. 
TC-2018-000136-THA Tropical Cyclone Thailand From 17-19 August, Typhoon Bebinca caused flash floods and landslides in six Northern provinces of Thailand - Nan, Chiangrai, Lampang, Payao, Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son. More than 9,000 households have been affected.
