Devastating Somalia floods death toll close to 100

Somalia floods

The death toll from devastating floods in Somalia is close to 100, with almost two million people affected, the country’s cabinet said Thursday.
Somalia, like other countries in the Horn of Africa, is battling torrential rains and flash floods just as it emerges from a drought that pushed millions to the brink of famine.

The government earlier this month declared a state of emergency over the flood disaster, which has driven about 700,000 people from their homes, submerging whole neighborhoods and farmland, and destroying bridges.
