This week, Guadalcanal Provincial Disaster Authority is sending a total of five teams to carry out assessment to the wards that were badly affected by TC Harold

Each team consists of five officers with one police officer accompanying each team. This is to provide security for the officers during the field assessment.

However according to GP Disaster Office there is a delay to respond to victims of TC Harold Victims.

The office said they appreciate NGOs like Red Cross, Oxfam in their effort to support their team to carry out impact assessments on some of the areas they were able to reach.

"All Teams who currently out in the field and should complete their reports before Sunday for the final analysis. All reports will be categorized into impacts into different sectors example Agriculture ,education before we submit the final report to the National Disaster Management Office”, the statement said.
