Power has been partially restored. Communications are limited. Schools, water and roads have some capability. We give this an overall assessment as Behind Plan. With a confidence assessment of medium based on the amount of data we were able to gather in the municipality. Specific details are:
Schools: 8 of 14 schools are open (initial assessment, no schools were open, so this is a significant change).
