At least 2 people have died and 4 were injured after flash flooding struck in the city of Aden, Yemen, on 25 March, 2020.
Over 75mm of rain fell in 24 hours in Aden, triggering major flash flooding. Images on Social Media showed flood waters raging through city streets, dragging vehicles along with it.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Yemen said the “floods in Aden have caused extensive damage to many homes and properties. Humanitarian partners are rushing to the site to see what needs to be done. They’ll be providing emergency assistance as soon as they can.”
There were also reports of flooding in parts of Hadhramaut Governorate, in particular in the seaport of Al Mukalla.

Some miserable pictures from #Aden. The rain did not last for long but caused considerable damage. Electricity was cut off since this morning. Local reports stated two people killed and four injured.
Terrible new challenge in #Yemen. pic.twitter.com/DsuQ1VsdmQ
