International Medical Corps Mobilizes Teams, Supplies Across Haiti in Preparation for Tropical Storm Tomas
Date:11/4/2010

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Tropical Storm Tomas, which is projected to hit Port-au-Prince and other earthquake-affected areas in the west, poses a serious danger for Haiti's more than one million displaced. Tropical storm conditions can result in extremely strong winds, heavy rainfall, flash floods and mudslides which could devastate the temporary tent shelters, spread waterborne disease, and isolate towns and villages along Haiti's coast and in its mountainous areas.  International Medical Corps is working to prepare communities in and around Port-au-Prince and the coastal cities of Petit Goave and Jacmel by distributing storm preparedness information, stockpiling and pre-positioning medicines and other essential supplies, and preparing our network of 14 primary health care clinics and medical teams to deliver lifesaving care following the storm.

"International Medical Corps is extremely concerned with the possibility that Tropical Storm Tomas may hit already vulnerable tent cities erected after the earthquake," says Dr. Jojo Cangao, International Medical Corps medical director in Haiti. "A storm of this projected magnitude could devastate the camps, cause widespread waterborne disease as well as hasten the spread of the cholera outbreak."

International Medical Corps has mobilized Emergency Response Teams and is educating at-risk communities in preparation for Tomas, which is expected to make landfall in Haiti as early as Thursday late afternoon. Additional medical supplies are also being delivered at an accelerated pace to Cholera Emergency Response Teams in Artibonite, in Haiti's northern region, so that the ongoing response to the recent cholera outbreak can continue. International Medical Corps has also positioned a medical team in Les Cayes and is preparing its boat clinic to access isolated and cut-off coastal villages west of Petit Goave following the storm.
