Comments: Rainfall since June has provoked flooding in several localities, killing 42 people. The number of victims has dramatically increased during the last week of August, when the waters of the Niger basin have reached the flood stage. According to the authorities, the floods so far have destroyed 5,497 homes and affected the lives of 66,464 people. The National Forecast Agency estimates that the waters will continue rising over the next days due to heavy rains in the Niger basin and the overload of dams in Burkina Faso and Mali.
