FL-2023-000201-MMR Flood Myanmar Since 4 October, the Myanmar Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH) has been issuing flood advisory warnings and weather system alerts for the water levels of major rivers. From 5 to 9 October, heavy rainfall in the late monsoon season, triggered extensive flooding in southern Myanmar. On 9 October, Bago township experienced an unprecedented 7.87 inches (200 millimetres) of rainfall, the highest recorded in 59 years. On 10 October, Bago River water level reached 4 feet above the danger level which caused widespread flooding in urban and sub-urban areas. The impact of this flooding has been significant. It has affected families and croplands and led to the displacement of people in areas from Bago City and Yangon, including the townships of Taik Kyi, Hlegu, and Hmawbi. Currently, there is limited data on needs and sectors relating to the requirements of the affected population. However, food, water, basic household needs, hygiene and sanitation are immediate needs by looking at current flood impact, pre-existing vulnerabilities and complexity of the country as well as a request from MRCS regional branches. By looking at the level of a flood, the density of the population and based on initial data as well as preexisting vulnerability data, it can be expected that likely result in direct needs related to essential household, food, drinking water, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), livelihoods and health support. The overall impact will be known once needs are determined following the completion of the rapid needs assessment. Existing data shows that multidimensional variables influence the level of vulnerability of most flood-affected townships including poverty incidence and shelter construction typologies. For instance, a higher number of pre-existing vulnerable populations is much higher in Bago which also has poor housing structures i.e. houses with light roofs/walls and huts/salvaged material, construction typologies most vulnerable to extreme weather events.
