Chlef Province in Algeria has experienced heavy rainfall on Saturday 06 March, causing Wadi Meknasa to flood including the area of the Oud Sly Commune, west of the city of Chlef. The floods caused severe damages to houses and infrastructures, sweeping away vehicles with its passengers, leading to the death of ten people washed away by the waterflood including three children. The Algerian Red Crescent (ARC) played a crucial role in the response through its Search and Rescue network of volunteers in support to the civil defence efforts since the beginning.
