"Five people have died and 2 500 people have fled their homes in the Kyelaprovinsen in south-western Tanzania after a week of rain which caused significant flooding."
"– the Destruction after the floods is huge, " says Salome Magambo, representing Kyelaprovinsen."
"Schools in Kyela is closed and a part of the people who left their homes have sought refuge with friends, in churches or in schools."
"Food and medicines have been distributed to the stranded, said Magambo."
"the Area is known for its risproduktion and several plantations have been destroyed in the flood waters which has increased the fear of food shortages in the coming months."
