Heavy rainfall has caused extensive flooding across the Lunga District of Zambia. 8 thousand homes have been flooded and more than 80,000 people have been affected.

Displaced people have moved to safe areas and food has been delivered to households that are isolated. Five schools with damaged roofs have hade resources and manpower allocated so they can reopen.

The government has assembled a team of 400 people to help unblock canals and allow the waters to recede. Dredging equipment and other resources have been mobilised to assist the recovery effort.

Although weather conditions have improved the area remains on high alert as any further rainfall could fall on saturated ground and cause further flash flooding.
