Some 72,680 people in Afar, Somali and SNNP regions were affected by flooding. More than 50,000 people were displaced, having partially or totally lost their homes and livelihoods. The forecasted good performance of the deyr (October-December) rains in the Somali region pose a continued risk of flooding. The Government and humanitarian partners started mobilizing resources. Responses are coordinated through the Government-led Incident Command Posts in Gode, Jijiga (Somali region) and Amibara (Afar region). Given the limited resources, partners were advised to prioritize the most vulnerable people.
