Namibia flooding

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.
