Disaster description

In August 2007, nearly 2,000 people in the Ivorian city of Agboville were struggling to find drinking water after sewage-filled flood waters poisoned wells that had been their sole source of water. Many families lost all their mattresses, clothes, appliances and documents when flood waters engulfed their homes. (IRIN, 14 Aug 2007)
