TIMEFRAME expected from 6/18/2019, 12:00 AM until 6/22/2019, 11:59 PM (Africa/Bangui). COUNTRY/REGION Bangui

Event

As of Tuesday, June 18, fuel shortages have been reported in the capital of Bangui. According to residents, many people are forced to wait for hours at fuel stations. Reports indicate that shortages are being caused by a fire that broke out at the Lembe's refinery located in neighbouring Cameroon, as well as the lack of rain, which hampers water transport. It is unclear as to when the situation will be resolved.

Advice

Individuals in Bangui are advised to monitor developments to the situation, be prepared for water cuts and maintain additional supplies of bottled water, limit water usage (including flushing toilets), and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
