Storyline:National News





At least 600 goats have been confirmed dead following a 48 hour downpour that hit mulitple districts in Bari region, according to some officials from that region.

The heavy rains which pounded much of that region on Saturday and Sunday caused floods and damaged property.

The incident occurred in Dharoor Valley of Dabar village under Isku-Shiban District. Isku-Shiban District commissioner, Abdirisak Musa Artan told the media that they are undertaking initiatives to help people affected by the disaster.

“We shall dispatch officials to the areas to oversee the situation and we shall try to respond early enough,” Artan said.

The DC stated that the damage caused by the heavy rains may increase as there is no proper Meteorology Agency in the region.

“This rain may continue for a few days but will not last, so people have to be attentive as the season gets underway” he said.

Rains of the spring season have started across Somalia with heavy downpours being reported from drought stricken regions.
