Heavy rainfall, strong winds, and thunderstorms have been affecting central Indonesia, particularly Sulawesi Island, since 5 March. The severe weather conditions have resulted in casualties, damage, and displacement of people. The ASEAN Disaster Information Network (ADINet) has reported on the situation, highlighting the number of casualties, affected people, and damage caused by the severe weather conditions.

Overview of the Situation
The severe weather conditions have caused floods and strong wind-related incidents that have resulted in casualties and damage. As of 8 March, one fatality, three injured people, more than 60 evacuated people, around 130 damaged houses, and a total of nearly 350 affected people have been reported across the Konawe Regency (Southeast Sulawesi Province) due to a tornado that occurred on 5 March. In addition, floods have affected more than 500 houses and approximately 2,100 people across the Southeast Sulawesi Province and the Central Sulawesi Province, leading to the displacement of 20 people.

Immediate Needs of the Affected Communities
The affected communities are in urgent need of shelter, food, and clean water. The displacement of people has left many families homeless and in urgent need of temporary shelter. The damage to houses and property has also left many families without access to basic necessities such as food and clean water. Urgent action is required by the Government and humanitarian actors to address the immediate needs of the affected communities.

Forecasted Weather Conditions
Over the next 24 hours, more heavy rainfall and strong winds are forecast over Sulawesi Island. This situation poses an even greater threat to the affected communities and calls for urgent action by the Government and humanitarian actors.

Conclusion
The severe weather conditions in central Indonesia, particularly Sulawesi Island, have caused significant damage, displacement, and loss of life. Urgent action is required by the Government and humanitarian actors to address the immediate needs of the affected communities, provide them with the necessary support to recover from this disaster, and prepare for the forecasted weather conditions.
