UNPRECEDENTED Libya Flood Death Toll Passes 11,000, with 10,000 still Missing

The death toll in Libya following devastating flood has surpassed 11,000, according to the Libyan Red Crescent.

The organization reported that at least 11,300 have died from the floods, with another 10,100 still reported missing.

The massive flooding has been attributed to the Mediterranean storm Daniel, which caused heavy downpours of rain and decimated entire neighborhoods in the region.

One of the areas mainly affected flood was the city of Derna, with dams collapsing, resulting in a quarter of the area being completely destroyed.

Officials have now declared the area a disaster zone, with electricity and communication services cut off.

The aftermath of the Libya flood has been described as deeply “shocking” with “unimaginable in its consequences” as the death toll rises.

Meanwhile, The World Health Organization urged Libyan authorities to stop burying flood victims in mass graves.

The disaster is being described as “unprecedented.”

According to the BBC, the statement urged that victims should be buried in well-demarcated and documented graves, as a hasty burial can lead to long-lasting mental distress for grieving family members.

“Both governments have reached out to the international community requesting services and help,” Tauhid Pasha of the International Organization for Migration told BBC Radio on Wednesday night.

“The Government of National Unity has extended its support to us and its request on behalf of the entire country, and they are also coordinating with the government in the east,” he said

NBC reported that Mohamed Manfi, president of the Presidential Council of Libya, said Thursday on X, the social network formerly known as Twitter, that the country’s public prosecutor would open an investigation into any possible negligence that contributed to the disaster.

As some seek to find who to blame for the catastrophe, a humanitarian disaster is also unfolding for survivors.
