Heavy rain in Somalia has caused flash floods in the Hiran and Gedo regions.

The Shabelle and Juda rivers are at high risk of flooding, as the rainfall has increased their water level to as much as 6 m in some areas.

Rain is expected to continue for several more days, raising the risk of further flooding.
