The BBC reports that they are likely to victims of strong winds, floods, cyclones and even earthquakes, according to the government relief agency, the National Disasters Management Institute. Luisa Meque, who heads the agency, said they have drawn a contingency plan – with a budget of $99m – which will be submitted to the cabinet for approval. While, the country’s Prime Minister appealed to government agencies to be prepared to offer assistance to people who will be in need.
