Ethiopia – Flash floods have displaced 120,000 people in Ethiopia and a total of almost half a million are expected to be affected this year, sparking another weather-related crisis in the country already experiencing severe drought. Data from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) showed 119,711 people in six provinces had been displaced by last month’s “exceptional” flooding. Some of the affected regions had already been hard hit by food shortages, it said. River and flash floods caused by Ethiopia’s “belg” rains which run from February to April are likely to affect a total of 485,610 people this year, UNOCHA said. According to the agency, these floods are hampering the deliveries of food aid in the East African nation.
