Latest from Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar Islands

Update as of January 4, 2004

Mr. Anshu Sharma of SEEDS ( http://wwww.seedsindia.org ) mentioned that
the three relief camps in Port Blair, Andaman are doing well. There are no critical
shortages right now and the relief camps are ready to be handed over to local management. Nicobar islands are still off-limits as the Govt. of India has restricted
access to these areas. There is still no official estimate of the damage in Nicobar
Islands but most of the inhabited islands have been evacauted. The evacuated population have either been re-located to Port Blair or to the mainland.
