Continuous heavy rains and consequent flooding have killed at least 11 people and injured 30 others in Aden province and other areas of southern Yemen as of Tuesday, April 21. Reports suggest that the floods have also severely damaged some buildings and roads in Aden city, as well as internally displaced people (IDP) sites in Marib, Hajjah, Sana'a, and Aden provinces. 

Further rain is forecast across western Yemen over the next 24 hours. Associated business and transportation disruptions are to be expected in affected areas over the coming hours and days.


Individuals in Aden province and other affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid areas directly affected by flooding, confirm road conditions before setting out, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities. Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
