FL-2015-000006-MWI Flood Malawi Heavy rains over the last few weeks have led to severe flooding across Malawi. To date, an estimated 106,000 people have been displaced, 48 killed, and 19 remain missing. The floods have also caused extensive damage to crops, livestock and infrastructure.

While a decrease in rainfall is forecasted for southern Malawi over the next week, more rains are predicted for the north of the country.
