14 people killed in South of Yemen due to non-seasonal floods


Flooding in South governorates killed at least 14 people this week after nonseasonal rainstorms hit parts of the country, security officials said.
The provinces of Al-Mahrah, Hadramout, Shabwa, Abyan in the South and Al-Jouf have seen instances of flooding.
In Shabwa, local officials said a father and daughter are believed to have drowned after swiftly moving waters carried their car away.
Searchers had only recovered the body of the father.
The storms are not seasonal for the South and the east of Yemen, which is usually dry this time of year.
The country’s northwestern highlands experience seasonal rain from late spring through early fall.
The storms also damaged crops, roads, and telecommunications infrastructure.
Yemen’s weather service warned late on Wednesday that the rest of the country should be prepared for more rain in the coming two days.
