There has been floods in Namibia. The flood had caused food shortage. It had damaged fields of crops, houses, schools, roads, and health centers have been destroyed. The rising of the waters brought crocodiles and hippos in. And now, they are swimming in the waters finding people to kill. The flood had killed at least 90 people.

Although the rain had stopped, the great damaged caused thousands of people to wait some times before they could all return home.

Namibia’s President, Hifikepunye Pohanba, declared the emergency in the six northern districts. He also called the international community. There’s this problem. the aid workers fear that the floods may carry diseases like cholera and malaria.

I wonder when all those people would be able to get home or settle in another place.
