September 12, 2023 - More than 3,000 people are believed to have died after Storm Daniel caused devastating floods that swept away entire neighbourhoods in eastern Libya.

Another 10,000 people are believed to be missing, according to a Red Cross and Red Crescent official.

In just the city of Derna, the worst hit area, at least 700 people have been confirmed dead from the unprecedented flooding. Authorities have declared Derna a disaster zone, saying the city has become inaccessible as electricity and communication have been cut off, according to ABC News.
