Communities and IDP camps in the region have been severely affected, putting further stress on IDPs that have recently relocated from the conflict in the north of Syria, with very limited coping abilities for this new disaster. Approximately 9,000 families (45,000) people have been affected by the floods with at least 5,000 houses destroyed or damaged. The loss of agricultural land and livestock is likely to have further harmful impact on the livelihoods and food security of hte local communities.
