OCHA report on Somalia’s flood situation

MOGADISHU (SD) -The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has announced that the death toll from floods in Somalia has risen to 110.

The OCHA report indicates that more than one million people have been displaced by the floods in Somalia.

Additionally, it highlights concerns about the outbreak of waterborne diseases and malnutrition in the regions of Hirshabelle and Galmudug.

The agency also noted that, so far, only 30% of the affected population has received assistance.

In recent weeks, Somalia has experienced heavy rains, resulting in widespread flooding that has caused both human and material losses, including displacement, property damage, and infrastructure collapse.

The flooding is attributed to the effects of the El Niño weather phenomenon, impacting the Indian Ocean’s sea surface temperatures.
