Far North Region, Cameroon, September 2021UNOCAH reported that, as of 6 September, heavy rains and floods have affected more than 2,400 people, destroying more than 360 houses, several bridges and roads, and killing three people in the Mayo-Sava division, in the Far North region. Due to the silting up of cultivated areas and strong rise in water levels, over 700 hectares of land have been destroyed, and more than 430 cattle have died, which could worsen the food security situation in the area. Humanitarian actors provided psychosocial support, water, sanitation, hygiene support, non-food items, and food assistance to those affected by the floods.Fri 10 Sep 2021FloodList provided by Copernicus GloFAS
