The city of Paoua and Poumadji village experienced floods overnight from 19 to 20 August 2019. These floods caused significant material and human damage. One death and five injuries have been recorded. Nearly 295 houses were destroyed. Families with partially or completely damaged houses were welcomed by families and friends, thus exacerbating the already limited resources of these host families. Water and sanitation infrastructures have also been destroyed, including 94 water wells and 107 latrines. (IFRC, 2 Sep 2019)
