Tropical Cyclone,Viet Nam: GDACS - Tropical Cyclone NORU-22 High humanitarian impact, max wind speed 259 km/h

Volcano,Comoros: On 15 July 2022, abnormal activity of the Karthala volcano in the Comoros was recorded by the Karthala Volcano Observatory (KVO), which manifested itself as persistent microseisms on the western flank of the island of Ngazidja. Regular observation of the volcano's activities has been initiated by the observatory with regular reports of continued seismic activity. Considering this worrying information transmitted by the Karthala observatory and according to the National Emergency Plan related to Karthala's activities in the country, the Minister of Interior in charge of security launched the yellow alert on 17 August 2022. The country was thus entering the phase of volcanic vigilance. On 22 August, the Directorate of Civil Security convened the first information meeting of all risk and disaster management actors, including the Comoros Red Crescent, to discuss the immediate actions to be taken following the alert. In the Fixed Command Post meeting on 5 September, the Karthala Volcano Observatory showed that the evolution of the volcano is worrying as the seismic movements have decreased and the magma pockets have gone from 12km deep to 1.5km and insisted on vigilance as the magma can move quickly to the surface which can surprise everyone if there is no preparation now. The KVO experts have shown that the reaction of the Karthala volcano can be unpredictable. According to their analysis, this means that there is very little control and certainty over whether the orange or red phase is triggered. This level of volcanic alert may therefore last for days, or weeks or even a year but can also return to a normal situation. The nature of the eruption is not known in advance, but several risks are already identified by the KVO based on current observations and historical data

Complex Emergency,Congo, Republic: n 14 September 2022, the Ministry of Humanitarian Action of the Congo requested the support of the Congolese government's partners to support the response to the population movements observed in N'gabe, following community violence in the Kwamunthu territory in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since 24 August 2022, some villages in the territory of Kwamunthu in the Democratic Republic of Congo, neighbouring the district of N'gabé in the Republic of Congo, have been affected by inter-ethnic conflicts between the Batékés, the Bayakas and the Ngombé. A large number of the DRC populations belonging to the different ethnic groups affected by this conflict have been forced to cross the Congo River to take refuge in various localities in the department of Pool-Nord in the district of N'gabé in its nine villages. They found refuge in the villages on the right bank upstream of the Congo River on the DRC side, forcing the displaced populations to return to the left bank of the Congo River on the Republic of Congo side (Ngabé). This conflict has caused the displacement of 1,700 people and the destruction of several houses, representing, as of the date of receipt of the report received from the government (14 September), 340 households without shelter and 1,700 people (340 households) affected and vulnerable received by the political-administrative authorities of Ngabé and many others in host families in some villages of N'gabé, including Sedeck, Ngobila and Mossengajoko 1. These 340 households have already been registered by the UNHCR.

Through June 22-23, local authorities of the affected municipalities officially approached the Georgia Red Cross Society (GRCS) with the kind request to support the affected population. Based on the information received from the GRCS branches and volunteers involved in the response activities, as well as from the local authorities of the affected municipalities, the heavy rain and the wind caused severe damages of roofs, ground/first floors (where people generally stock food and hygiene items for long-term use) and entrances. Agricultural lands and fruit trees are also destroyed. Agriculture is a primary source of income of the households in affected municipalities of Georgia. The damage caused by the disaster is foreseen to bring a heavy impact on the livelihood of the people affected. Special commission established by the Government of Georgia is calculating the damage caused by the heavy rain in the municipalities of Georgia. Georgia Red Cross has mobilized in total 20 volunteers in the affected five branches in affected regions for assessing the situation on the ground. Rapid assessment conducted by the GRCS volunteers also revealed that the main immediate need of the affected population is food and non-food items. The Emergency Management Service (EMS) under the Ministry of Interior in Georgia is actively involved in the liquidation works of the flooding and the landslide in the affected municipalities. Liquidation works include cleaning and restoring the essential parts of the damaged areas, properties, and infrastructures in the immediate aftermath of the emergency.
