Comments: Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms have been affecting central-southern Zambia (in particular Southern, Central, Eastern, and Lusaka Provinces) since 11 January, causing severe floods and rivers overflow (particularly Luangwa, and Mkushi Rivers) that have resulted in casualties and damage. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) reports, as of 28 January, a total of more than 22,000 affected people across Kalomo, Namwala, and Choma Districts in the Southern Province (the worst affected one). IFRC also reports 500 displaced families in a number of temporary evacuation centres in the Namwala Districts. Media also report several collapsed and severely damaged houses, a number of damaged bridges, and many isolated communities across the aforementioned affected provinces. Over the next 24 hours, more heavy rainfall is forecast over the whole country, with locally very heavy rainfall over the Central Province.
