The Namibian president
has declared a state of emergency
after nearly 10 000 people were affected by flooding in the north of the country. The country has
already had to deal with flooding
in other parts of the country this rainy season. This flooding is part of the
annual Zambezi high-water period
but seems far more serious than is usually the case. 62 people have drowned, 5000 have been driven from their home and 247 schools have been closed.
