Ivory Coast begins cleanup after deadly floods

 

 

A clean-up has begun in Ivory Coast’s main city of Abidjan after floods triggered by torrential rains left streets and houses underwater and at least three people dead.

Local residents said three hours of heavy rain on Thursday caused waters to surge by one and half metres in the space of 30 minutes, forcing some to take refuge on the roofs of buildings.

The Ivorian fire service is helping with the rescue and clean-up operation.

Last week, 16 people in the city died after heavy rains prompted mudslides.

Floods and landslides are common during Abidjan’s rainy season, which begins in May and usually lasts until the end of July.
