Heavy rains affected Central African Republic between late October and mid-November, causing severe flooding and displacement. On 25 October, the government declared a natural catastrophe and appealed for international support. As of 12 December, at least 83,000 people are estimated to have been affected by the flooding; over 15,000 are from the capital Bangui and nearby city of Bimbo.? Preliminary assessments report that flooding has destroyed at least 10,000 houses. Among the most affected areas are the Basse-Kotto prefecture and Bangui and its neighbourhoods, including Bimbo. The southwest of Bangui is particularly affected by flooding and many houses have been destroyed. No detailed assessments are available for Birao where markets, houses, and at least two IDP camps were flooded in early November.? Stagnant water and limited access to safe water and WASH facilities raise the fear of outbreak of waterborne diseases.? As flooding recedes, IDPs have started to return home as of mid-December.?
