Here's our latest on San Lorenzo:

12 of 22 Cell sites are out (54.5%). This is substantial progress since initial assessment 37 days ago, when 21 sites were out.

A final assessment of the San Lorenzo municipality has been conducted 3 Dec 2017, an interval of 38 days. Roads in town have been restored to nearly normal operations. Food, Power, Medical, cell coverage, running potable water and schools have some availability; mountainous areas are isolated; a major bridge is out. 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: 11 of 18 schools are open. This is substantial progress since initial assessment 37 days ago (no schools were open).

Medical: Two health centres are open with grid power: Neomed and Cossma. The CDT (hospital) has grid power.

Electricity: 13 sites have grid power, including the CDT (hospital). This is substantial progress since initial assessment 37 days ago. The Red Cross reports that for communities outside of the urban area, electricity is either not available or unreliable (on and off) (20 Nov).

Water: The Red Cross reports that for communities outside of the urban area, water is available, but it is not potable, and the supply is unreliable (on and off). If the water supply is off, residents must queue up for water from drums, which is not potable. The Red Cross donated water filters which were a success. (20 Nov)

Food: Food prices are high. Local fruit and vegetable trees and gardens have been destroyed. Residents need to queue up for food supplies and can’t keep food cold if they are without power, as they are also having trouble obtaining ice. (20 Nov)

Food and water aid: The Municipality, and Red Cross distribution is ongoing as at 27 Nov.
