Comments: Flooding caused by heavy rains has caused loss of life and extensive property damages and the destruction of critical infrastructure in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), on the night of 12 to 13 December. According to the Congolese authorities, at least 130 people died, nearly 14,000 households were flooded and at least 519 houses were destroyed, leaving many families homeless. The heavy rains also provoked landslides which destroyed a section of the road linking Kinshasa to the neighbouring province of Kongo Central. The Congolese authorities immediately began work to reopen the road, which is a major supply road for food and other essential goods, to prevent a rise in food prices in Kinshasa.
