Widespread flooding has inundated Guyana, swamping roads, homes and farmland throughout the small South American country. More than 6,900 households have been severely affected by the flooding in the past weeks, according to government estimates.

President Irfaan Ali has said that the flooding currently occurring is one of the worst disasters the country has ever faced and projected that it will take some time for it to recover once the situation has abated.

Despite a respite in some areas, floodwater has remained at significant levels in most of the country's regions as authorities continued to mobilise help for victims.
