Death and displacement as floods hit East Africa

Flooding throughout eastern Africa has killed dozens of people and displaced tens of thousands, underscoring intensifying climate risks in the drought-stricken region, aid agencies reported on Monday.

            It's high time that the governments should be well prepared in case of such calamities in future,atleast be well prepared and inform the people on what is likely to happen.
