Three displaced people die from floods in Hajjah

At least three displaced people were killed due to heavy torrential rains that hit Bani Qais district of Hajjah province, and over 50 huts were washed away  .

A local source told the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) that the floods caused the death of a displaced family consisting of a father, a mother and a child and the loss of another child in the al-Lawhah area of the directorate.

The floods also washed away over 50 huts for displaced families and caused material damage to property, he said, adding that these families have become homeless.

The director of the Branch of the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation in the Province, Allan Fa’idal, has appealed to organizations to respond urgently to the relief of the displaced and to provide them with shelter relief and food.

He pointed out that the continued heavy torrential rains during this period threaten many families living in the valleys and coastal areas where the majority of them live in tents and huts.
