Port city of Aden declared a disaster area after catastrophic flooding kills 10, Yemen

ADEN, YEMEN – The government of Yemen has declared the port city of Aden a disaster area on April 22, 2020, following devastating flash floods caused by up to 125 mm (5 inches) of rain in just 24 hours.

At least 14 people were killed and four others injured after torrential rain battered Yemen’s temporary capital this week, as the internationally-recognised government appealed for help for the “disaster area”.

Video footage and images circulating on social media showed barrages of water sweeping through the streets, submerging cars and shopfronts underwater.

In one distressing video, a group of men are seen saving an elderly man who was swept away in his wheelchair.
