Devastating floods and landslides in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s South Kivu province have killed more than 400 people in one of the country’s deadliest disasters in recent history. Flash floods washed away homes and buried the villages of Bushushu and Nyamukubi in debris. According to United Nations officials, hundreds of people remain unaccounted for, and 3,000 families are now homeless because of the tragedy. Climate experts say warming temperatures are increasing the intensity and frequency of Africa’s rains, making these types of events more catastrophic.
