  7. With the little information we have about current events on the island of altis, any strategic advantage that we hoped to gain via surveillance and intelligence will be limited until we have a presence on the island itself. The storm system in the area has been one of the worst in recorded history but it is beginning to clear. J3 predicts that the weather will have had an effect of the logistical capacity of the occupying forces along with their morale however they expect both to dramatically improve as the weather clears. The current command structure of the occupying forces is unknown, however a colonel along with 2 lieutenant colonel's disappeared in the days following the initial events. We have had extremely limited contact with the local population of the south of the island however we do know that around 100 civilians have fled across the DMZ with the north of the island with reports that prison camps of both civilian and military origin exist in the south. Information will be updated once it is received and confirmed.
