According to the Arab media, there are fears that the dead will exceed twenty thousand since the passage of the storm Daniel in the country
At least 11,000 people have died in Libya, according to the latest count, while fears are expressed that the dead will exceed twenty thousand since the passage of storm Daniel in the country, according to Arab media.
The population of Derna, which took the biggest hit, was about 200,000 before the storm hit Libya. The city’s mayor said that based on the number of neighborhoods completely destroyed, 18,000 to 20,000 people may have lost their lives. Also, thousands are injured or missing.
Satellite images show the extent of the devastation in the port of Derna after floods swept away bridges, roads, and entire buildings were swept away by a seven-meter wave.
Heavy rains from Storm Daniel caused the destruction of two dams, causing torrents of water to flood the area.
Many properties that stood near the river have disappeared and only their foundations are visible.
A large coastal road near the harbor has collapsed into the sea.
Hard-hit neighborhoods such as Al-Bilad and Al-Maghar on both sides of the river were also home to health care facilities used by people from across the city.
Houses built on the riverbed on the seaward side of the dam bore the brunt of the flood when the dams broke.
