Snow storms in Montenegro

Source: http://www.nato.int/eadrcc/2012/02-montenegro-snowfall/index.html

On 13 February 2012, the NATO Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) received a request for assistance from Montenegro.

Due to continuous snowfall since the beginning of February 2012, the snow cover reaches up to 2 meters in central and northern parts of Montenegro. As a result of the disaster, the Security Council of Montenegro has proclaimed the State of Emergency on the entire territory.

Due to heavy snow storms and avalanches on roads, all lines of communication from the Capital to the North of Montenegro are cut off. Only routes in the south are temporary operational.

approximately 10 - 12 thousand citizens have been cut off from administrative centers for a week and longer. This population mainly lives in the countryside, like mountain villages, having no electricity, stocks of food and medicines. It is expected that a significant number of citizens need to be evacuated.

Support to the US in response to Hurricane Katrina

FEMA Photo

On 4 September 2005, the United States requested from NATO relief support in the form of food supplies, to cope with the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Following up on that request, the United States Government provided the same day to NATO a longer list of requirements for support. This list included medical and logistical supplies.

NATO’s Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Center (EADRCC) coordinated responses to this request by Allies and NATO’s partners.

39 NATO and Partner countries offered assistance to the US.

On 9 September, the North Atlantic Council approved a NATO transport operation to help move donations from Europe to the United States. From 12 September to 2 October 2005, twelve NATO flights delivered almost 189 tons of relief goods.

A NATO liaison officer was dispatched to Washington to work with the US authorities, in particular the Federal Emergency Management Agency, to coordinate the delivery of assistance.

With the completion of the NATO air transport operation on 2 October 2005 all donations accepted by US authorities had been delivered; as there were no further requests for assistance from the US, the EADRCC operation in support of the US after Hurrican Katrina was suspended.
