Angola hit by fresh flood threat

Earth News: Angola, Africa
Feb 15, 2007
Thousands of villagers have been displaced and hundreds remain stranded in isolated areas as floods ravage eastern Angola near the Zambian border.
Heavy rains have caused havoc in several southern African countries during recent weeks.
In January, torrential rainfall in Angola's capital, Luanda, left more than 75 people dead.
But poor access has threatened rescue efforts for these latest floods, in the remote province of Moxico.
More than 400 houses have been destroyed and 9,000 people displaced in the latest flooding, caused by rising water levels on the River Zambezi.
All of the affected villages are close to the banks of the river, which runs through the far east of Angola into neighbouring Zambia.
