At least 58 killed by 2 weeks of floods

At least 58 killed by 2 weeks of floods: The government reports that 58 people have died as a consequence of the disastrous floods that have hit Tanzania over the previous two weeks. The situation has worsened due to the East African country’s ongoing heavy rains.

The government claimed that 126,831 individuals were affected by the flooding, with the coastal region bearing the brunt of it.

Those affected by the floods have been provided with vital supplies, including food, according to government spokeswoman Mobhare Matinyi’s announcement on Sunday.

Tanzania plans to build 14 dams, according to Matinyi, in order to reduce the likelihood of future flooding.

Heavy rains have been wreaking havoc across East Africa, with 13 people killed in flooding in neighboring Kenya.

Numerous lives have been lost and countless pieces of infrastructure have been severely damaged by the floods. People living in areas that are prone to flooding are being strongly encouraged to find safer places to live.

Worries about the region’s continuing flood catastrophe are heightened by meteorologists’ predictions that the rains will climax near the end of this month.
