Event

Over the past month, severe flooding has been affecting some of the districts of the capital N'Djamena located near the banks of the Chari and Logone Rivers. The situation has increased the number of waterborne disease cases in the area, such as malaria and diarrhea. Emergency measures will be put in place to contain the situation. 

Advice

Individuals present in affected areas in N'Djamena are advised to follow all instructions issued by local authorities (e.g. possible evacuation orders), allow additional time to travel, and monitor the situation via local media and weather reporting outlets. Please be advised that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock an adult over.
