Senegal floods expose need for community warning, preparation

15 Aug 2016, TRF

The extreme weather that battered Kaffrine and its surroundings took everyone by surprise, including the Met Office. A few of those affected received a weather forecast through the regional agricultural service, but the information lacked detail. At least 1,500 households were struck by the floods in what was described as an "extreme and unprecedented phenomenon".
