Libya Flooding 2023
On September 10, storm Daniel strikes Libya, causing heavy rainfall, widespread landslides, flooding and the collapse of two dams.
The scenario immediately looks tragic, with thousands dead and missing and serious damage to roads and infrastructure. The city most affected is Derna, in the north-eastern region of the country, where the operations of rescue and assistance to the population are mainly focussed.
Italy promptly responded to the request for support made by the Libyan authorities. On 13 September, a state of mobilisation of the National Civil Protection Service has been declared.
As of September 17, about 480 Italian teams were engaged in the territories affected by the emergency involving the Civil Protection Department, the National Fire Department and the Armed Forces, while diplomats from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation were already on site.
