Flooding in Libya

Severe flooding is affecting the coastal city of Zliten, in Libya, as well as the town of Bir Al Ghanem.

The flooding is the result of rising ground water levels in this area. The phenomenon has been ongoing for several years, but increased in the last few weeks, with water levels reaching as high as 1.5 m in some locations.

Low-lying houses have been flooded and around 70-80 families have been evacuated.
The government has declared a state of emergency to respond to the crisis, and international experts have been called on to investigate the cause.
