Heavy rain brings flooding to southern Africa

By Richard Angwin

Parts of southern Africa are experiencing torrential rain which is causing serious flooding. Zimbabwe has been badly affected in recent days. At least a dozen people have been killed and the country’s lack of disaster management infrastructure has been blamed for some of the disruption that has followed. The country also experienced severe flooding in April 2014, when more than 20,000 people were displaced by what was reportedly the heaviest rainfall in 40 years.
