Ndjamena Chad Flooding
Some 190,000 people across Chad have been affected by severe flooding triggered by record downpours since early August. According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), nearly 120,000 of these victims have been displaced-- much of the affected were in the capital city of N'Djamena, where 10 people have died across seven departments due to flash flood-related incidents. This was the highest rainfall on record in nearly 30 years, exacerbating other challenges those living in the region are experiencing. Although the rains have subsided, the effects of the floods are still ongoing.
