Victorious Beledweyne Locals Brave Through Shabelle River Deluge, Triumphantly Reclaim Their Homes

In Beledweyne, residents affected by recent floods are making their way back home despite the obstacles presented by the floodwaters and debris still lingering. The Shabelle River inundated parts of the city, particularly Kooshin and Hawa Taako, displacing many families. Bundaweyn and Wohlwadaag also saw flooding.

Even though the roads are mud-covered and cluttered with debris, some families have decided to return. One resident from the Radar branch of Kooshin shared, “We rather return despite the mess as the places we sought refuge in are barren, exposing us to extreme heat and cold. Once we’re back home, we can clean up the mess.” Last week’s flooding caused significant displacement and damage to homes and roads, marking the second flood in Beledweyne in half a year.

Now, as the community begins the challenging process of rebuilding and recovering, they must also prepare for potential future floods.
