Flood kills at least two in Cameroon


At least two people have been reportedly killed after torrential rains triggered flash floods in Buea, the chief town of Cameroon’s Southwest region.

According to Mayor of Buea, David Mafani Namange, the flood was triggered by several hours of heavy rain on Saturday which carried away cars and debris and inundated the basement and ground floors of some buildings, turning roads into rivers.

It was gathered that at least 10 people are receiving treatment in hospitals in the town after sustaining injuries from the disaster.
