MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — At least three people died after heavy downpours destroyed their houses in Somalia capital on Friday, officials said.
Two of the three died after their home was destroyed by the heavy floods in Bondhere District on Thursday night, following 24 hours of nonstop raining in Mogadishu, the district health officer Osman Nur said.
This season’s rains already commenced in many parts of the country’s southern regions, and are projected to continue until late June.
According to Mogadishu Mayor Thabit Abdi Mohamed, the local government has now begun assisting those affected by the rains.
"The rains have brought losses of lives and properties in Mogadishu. We, therefore are committed in extending a helping hand to the citizens affected.” The Mayor said during a press briefing in Mogadishu late on Friday.
In Kahda neighborhood which is one of the home for the thousands of the influx of the new internally displaced people in Mogadishu, the authorities made urgent appeal to seek assistance for the displaced families in the district as the unbearable heavy fall of the rain left them homeless so far.
Parts of the main roads in Mogadishu were impassable due to the flooding that blocked the roads.
