Tunisia – Flash flooding in central Tunisia killed at least two people including a six-year-old child on Wednesday, the interior ministry said. The drownings came less than a month after torrential rains killed at least five people in the northwestern region of Cap Bon. Schools across central Tunisia were closed throughout the day and the ministry said the flooding had closed many roads, particularly in Kasserine. The area surrounding the region’s main hospital was also under water.

Niger – Forty-five people have died in the arid west African country of Niger in flooding since June, and nearly 209 000 have been affected, the UN said on Tuesday. The rains destroyed nearly 17 400 homes, killed more than 33 000 livestock and damaged crops.

France – Authorities in the southwest region of France hit this week by destructive flash floods say the death toll has increased to 14, with one person still listed as missing.
