Nigeria North-East: Flood Situation Report #2, as of 30 August 2019

•    An estimated 21,056 households (HHs) have been affected by torrential rains and flash floods across Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe (BAY) states. Information on people and locations affected is being collected on an ongoing basis.
•    The majority of people affected require emergency shelter and household supplies; water purification, emergency latrine repairs, hygiene kits, food items, health services, vector control and draining of stagnant water.
•    An estimated 10,490 emergency and makeshift shelters have been partially damaged or destroyed, while some others were inundated in some IDP camps and host communities mainly in Borno State.  Water facilities have been damaged while about 550 latrines and bathing facilities were blown off due to heavy winds.
•    The risk of further heavy rainfall and floods remains high across the BAY states until the end of September, particularly in the seven Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Maiduguri, Monguno, Jere, Gwoza and Dikwa in Borno State, and Yola South and Yola North in Adamawa State where 10,790 HHs are already affected representing 51% of the total affected so far.
•    Joint area-based needs assessments are ongoing, as well as emergency and preventive actions. Based on available sectoral data, of 11,100 HHs in need of non-food items, aid partners have assisted approximately 2,360 HHs.
