Western Province in bad shape: Dr Hamblin

Parts of Western Province that were affected during the February 26 earthquake are still in very bad shape.

Emergency Controller Dr Bill Hamblin has revealed that North Fly is one of the worst hit areas.

The disaster has caused many problems now for people in those areas.

Some of those issues include landslides, water logging and gardens which have been washed away, while in other parts water sources have been greatly polluted that people have been going without food and water for days on end. 

Dr Hamblin stated that one of the issues blocking water sources are the debris dams caused when trees are washed out following the change in the land and environment due to the quake.
