We stand ready to support our partners in Libya

Days after the earthquake devastated parts of Morocco, on 10 September, Storn Daniel hit Libya, causing major destruction largely in the northeastern regions of Benghazi, Tobruk, Toukra, Talmeitha, Almarj, Taknes (Al Jabal Al Akhdar), Al Owailia, Bayada, Albayda, Shahhat, Sousa, and Derna. The storm resulted in heavy rainfall, powerful winds and flooding, with a dam collapsing in Derna that washed away entire neighbourhoods. The humanitarian community is suddenly faced with mounting challenges to search and rescue survivors in this double tragedy.
