Flooding in Somalia and Ethiopia


Recommended Posts

Flash floods caused by heavy rains have killed at least 14 people, displaced thousands more, and destroyed properties and homes in several areas of Somalia signalling an early start of the Gu rainy season, which usually runs from April to June.

Those who have lost their homes are now living in makeshift shelters on higher ground, which are severely overcrowded and lack water and sanitation facilities. The Somali Disaster Management Agency (SoDMA) said it is the worst flooding in almost a decade.

Heavy rain in the Ethiopian Highlands has also made its way downstream, increasing river levels in Somalia.
