Thousands are feared dead and thousands more are missing; Derna turned into a ghost town

Libya: Floods caused by cyclones and heavy rains are said to have killed over three thousand people in the African country of Libya. Over ten thousand people have gone missing. The floods were caused by heavy rains from the Mediterranean hurricane Daniel. The flood affected the city of Derna in Libya.

The collapse of two dams here due to heavy rains added to the magnitude of the disaster. According to reports, 2000 people died in Derna alone. In addition to Derna, the floods also caused significant damage in Bayda in eastern Libya, Benghazi, Bayda, Al Marj, and Susa in the coastal areas of northern Libya.

One of the main cities, Derna, and its surrounding areas were submerged in water after the Mediterranean hurricane Daniel hit. The storm Daniel started blowing in eastern Libya on September 10. The coastal towns of Jabal al-Akhdar and Benghazi are completely devastated.

Libyan Prime Minister Osama Hamad also announced that more than 10,000 people were missing in Derna, a city with a population of 100,000. Abdul Jalil, a traveller who came to the city, said that Derna has become a ghost town. Many dead bodies are still floating around. He claimed that many people were washed away in the sea. Following Storm Daniel, flooding occurred in Libya. Daniel wreaked havoc in Libya after wreaking havoc in Greece the previous week.
