The torrential floods and storms of the Cyclone caused the deaf of the people and the loss of thousands of livestock species (Shoats and camels) who were either swept by the floods or died from hypothermia. Some of the villages have been totally flattened to the ground. It caused loss and damages of other properties including boats, fishing equipments, communal services, businesses, and other utilities in the affected villages. The farms that lined up the seasonal rivers have been washed away. The fishing village that dotted the coastal line lost most of their boats. This means total population of 87150 persons are displaced by the Cyclone in Somaliland in the past few days who have been affected by by displacement and destruction of infrastructure in Sagar’s wake.
