Body

From 5 to 7 August 2022, the cities of Dakar, Thiès and Matam recorded heavy rainfall totalling almost 500 mm for the three regions, according to weather data. Assessment reports by volunteers reveal that this situation caused a lot of damage in the mentioned areas, resulting in the destruction of 170 houses and the displacement of 1,396 families who were accommodated in schools or hosted by neighbours in challenging living conditions. Some 317 families were not relocated and are still living in their flooded houses. In these three regions, 8 departments are the most affected: five departments in Dakar, the department of Thiès, and two departments in Matam. (IFRC, 12 Aug 2022)
