Three killed in Tunisia floods
TUNIS, Oct 25, 2021 (BSS/AFP) - Three people have died in floods in Tunisia
after heavy rain storms battered the North African nation, a spokesman for
the civil protection agency said.
In Thala, a town in northwest Tunisia, two people aged 20 and 27 died
after their car was washed away by surging waters, agency spokesman Moez
A 24-year-old died in floods in Borj Chakir near the capital Tunis, added
Tunisia suffers seasonal floods when the country's often dilapidated
infrastructure -- including old water drainage systems and poorly planned
urban development -- is overcome by intense rains.
In September 2020, six people including three children died when storm
waters smashed into homes across the country, while in 2018 at least five
people died in floods.
