Moroccan flood emergency!! (irusa.org)

About

In late November 2014, heavy storms caused devastating floods that swept through Morocco. Areas including Guelmin, Agadir and Ourrzazate, as well as tourist hub Marrakesh were hit hard.

There have been reports that at least 100 homes were destroyed, and 100 roads, including six major highways, were impassable.

While Morocco has experienced major flooding in the past, eyewitnesses say that this is the worst they’ve seen in decades, and they fear that harsher weather is on its way.

Local Mustapha al Gemrani told one reporter, “We haven’t seen anything like this since 1986 … people were very scared.”

By the Numbers

More than 100 homes have been destroyed, rendering thousands homeless

At least 32 people were killed in the first three days of the flood

This has been some of the heaviest rainfall in the region in 28 years
