Hurricane Dorian wreaked unprecedented mass destruction on Bahamas: UN relief chief

"This is matt wells u._n. News in the wake of hurricane doreen you and emergency relief coordinator mark lowcock flew to the bahamas on wednesday to meet with the prime minister and other members the government and discussed the next steps in the relief effort access to the worst affected islands of grand bahama and avocado remains extremely limited and the death toll is expected you to rise speaking in an exclusive interview with you and uses conor lennon. Mr lowcock described the scene as one of mass destruction huge numbers of homes destroyed breath huge areas of settlements towns and villages inundated with water debris everywhere call submerged with water save scenes of devastation on <hes> essentially the whole bulk of the population of those two islands apcoa <hes> <hes> set of violence and the population of fifteen twenty thousand people and then grand bahama with population probably the over fifty thousand people now you've made with the prime minister of the the bahamas the mood they must be pretty somber. Yes the <hes> hamas has never seen and events on such a catastrophic doc. Scale is this and <hes> it wasn't just the the hurricane was a huge hurricane much bigger than had been predicted but it hung in <hes> vicious way really for more than twenty four hours over deceptive islands batching them research after surge of seawater altering i wins and so on and so the <hes> government who <hes> used to dealing with that disasters aw aw naturally struck by the scale of the challenge they face. They have mobilized their system in an effective way they all the u._n. To come and help to prepare late last week which we did. We have people on the ground from friday. More than twenty percents of the population of the country probably has been affected in a very acute severe way by this disaster and really a huge event the like of which never been seen before in the bahamas. I mean if you in now the place is what it would be for twenty percent of the population of a country to have their lives lives turned upside down in their homes devastated in a single event over the the period of a couple of days the u._k. Twenty percent people if it were to happen in the u._k. Would be twelve million people just imagine something of that order. When you get a sense of wall the scale of the challenge facing the bahamas is now of course. It's a country with much more to population proportionate portion to its size. This is really unprecedented and catastrophic for the bahamas. Any government would be you know struck by the scale of the challenge and what we in the u._n. Wants to do is just provide the best health before we can as they meet the needs of their people and that's the commitment i made to the prime minister and his senior colleagues in the cabinet axis. This is still very difficult. Isn't it in the affected areas. How don't you think it will be before you can actually get teams on the ground. Access is very difficult. Most of the airports clashed population centers and not usable currently there. There are these these one apple in the south of the avocado islands which probably is operable apart. It's a long way from the main population centers and the roads between the formulation centers basically cut off. Some of the docs are also not useable so the main main means of access at the moment practically speaking is by helicopter and <hes> helicopters have been collecting the people in most severe need for example live <hes> medical evacuation and taking them to hospitals given that some of those in <hes> avocado and grand bahama. I'm not able to function of the moment how along will be before airports not running again and this this a facilities in us in to say at this stage where we are hoping and to have more assessment teams on the ground imminently. Do you have an idea on the list of what the next steps will be. Probably about. Seventy thousand people who are in need of surgent assistance in the prime minister told me that his priorities with food water shelter accommodation he's also rightly of course folks so maintaining public order and security security and there's also needs for health and medical services. We <hes> have had some casualty figures. Are you expecting these. She goes to rise tragically. It is very likely that the confirmed death toll is going to rise the prime minister told me that so far the official figures <hes> going to eight people having lost allies but i think it's it is likely that the final number will turn out to be. I'm afraid substantially very substantially potentially larger than that of course remediate focuses to try to avoid further loss of life and that's why there's this urgent priority on food food water accommodation health services for people so that there is for the loss of life beyond lab. That's already taken place even impossible to assess all of it. The bahamas is a prosperous country. What would you say to those who are wondering why the united nations needs to be involved in the relief effort huge event event twenty percent of the population affected. The government is taking the lead in organizing nursing homes. I'm paying the response <hes> any government for an event to solve just scale would naturally look for international assistance and the u._n. Has a very important role to play in that so what i would say is there's a human solidarity human even empathy and suffering. We all understand which would justify just the u._n. But overtones as well contributing to meet people's needs at this time of extreme <hes> tragedy is that we haven't covered that you think it's important for people to understand about the situation. I think you've got that rush. They're really thank you as we've covered the main things i wanted to cover okay. Maybe <hes> you know it's not really <hes> in the press briefing about what this this means <hes>. Let me just ask you a question about that so i understand around twenty percents of the population is affected and gives an idea of what this means for the bahamas.
