Viavant and Corovid workers have succeeded in draining out the last of the standing water and checked all residences and other structures for inhabitants. Our rescue operations are now complete.
We have accounted for nearly all residents of Atchafalaya at this time. The total number of lives lost stands at 7,315. This includes 2,329 children of any gender.
335 residents remain unaccounted for. It is most likely that those individuals were washed out to sea.
There are 30,349 residents still in Moisant. (The full population of the city was around 400,000. The rest of the survivors have been evacuated.) Supplies are being distributed to these people, and most of them are living in a shelter run by Viavant staff, at a location which we will not publicly disclose. I have asked my staff to keep a running tally of which supplies are being used or given out where. We should be able to provide that to interested parties within a week.
We have not yet made use of the medical center, simply because we were previously busy with rescue efforts and have not yet deployed an analysis to determine what its best placement will be. There are very many needs that require addressing, from bacterial infections to stopping the spread of water-communicable diseases, to caring for children and the infirm, to studying the health effects of the atmosphere and exposure to agents such as black mold.
That analysis is forthcoming, and I will be managing it alongside a crew of Viavant’s best doctors and researchers.
For now, we are looking for volunteers to help us rebuild, as well as businesses to establish or reestablish themselves in Moisant. Supplies are always welcome, but are less of an emergency now, as donations have helped us stabilize rations and prepare shelters. Our thanks go out again to everyone who sent us aid in any form.
If you know of a planetside business that might be interested in expanding to Octanneve, please contact me or @Melisma_Ramijozana.
We will continue to provide updates as they come.
