Côte d'Ivoire is a West African country with beach resorts, rainforests and a French-colonial legacy. Abidjan, on the Atlantic coast, is the country’s major urban center. Its modern landmarks include zigguratlike, concrete La Pyramide and St. Paul's Cathedral, a swooping structure tethered to a massive cross. North of the central business district, Banco National Park is a rainforest preserve with hiking trails. ― Google

In the 10 localities affected, the damage recorded by the rapid assessment of the Red Cross of Cote D'Ivoire includes: the destruction of 134 houses and 11 schools, the rupture of roads, flooding of markets, contamination of wells, etc. The heavy flooding has led to the rupture of water pipes, further increasing the water level in the communities.
