Disaster description

During the night of 21 Jan 2014, heavy rains caused flash floods in Dumila/Dakawa area in Tanzania's Morogoro region, which displaced over 10,000 people and destroyed or damaged houses, roads, bridges, public buildings and crops. The majority of the displaced people live on safer/higher open grounds along the road, making emergency shelter a critical need. Most most of the affected villages have their boreholes contaminated with flood/muddy water. The water has started to recede in some areas, but many vulnerable households will remain in need of emergency assistance for some months to come. (IFRC, 1 Feb 2014)
