Description of the Event

Heavy flooding over the last few weeks has left 65 dead and over 100,000 homeless in Niger, caused by a severe rain season and the River Niger bursting its banks.

The capital city of Niamey was struck by the flood waters from the River Niger, and Agadez City in the centre of Niger has also been affected.

The Dosso region has suffered the worst effects of the floods, however, with an estimated ten thousand homes destroyed.

Relief and international aid is being provided to help with the recovery.
