Namibia flood updates Pt. 9

The Flood Emergency Coordinating Office (FEMCO) is reporting that that the situation in Namibia's north-central regions, which were hit by the worst floods in decades, is slowly returning to normal as flood levels are decreasing. About 15 549 people are acutally still accommodated at relocation camps in the Caprivi, Ohangwena, Oshana and Omusati regions. According to Dorkas Kapembe-Haiduwa, the Secretary General of Namibia Red Cross Society (NRCS), the numbers are steadily reducing but the Caprivi continues to have the highest number with 9 800 people still in camps.
