Life was badly affected in many regions including Niger’s capital Niamey and Maradi due to the heavy rainfall since the beginning of August. Most of the reed houses became unusable, and about 100,000 people were affected by the flood. At least 2,000 people became homeless. And to make matters worse, more than 50 people lost their lives due to the floods. Thousands of animals also died.
