Ref: OCHAGVA - 98/0207.
1. Several days of uninterrupted torrential rains in early May have submerged hundreds of homes, washed away streets and destroyed bridges, cutting off several suburbs in Dar-es-Salaam. A collapsed bridge north of the capital damaged a major supply pipe of the city's water system leaving most inhabitants, hospitals and schools without water for over a week.
