Maya Matawlie sent some further information by email:
I just got back from the center. They were able to inform me the following:

The Coppename area and the Raleighfalls area are currently affected by the flooding. Since not to many people live there, the damages aren’t considered to be much.

The people in the villages of Kwamalasemutu and Tipu are moving out of their villages since the water is risen in those villages.

In the village of Asidonhopo where the water was residing it is currently raining again. It is also raining in , at the border with . That is not helping.

According to Mr. Lachin from the NDP center (they have sent in their own people to assess) the situation has taken a turn for the worse. According to the NDP, "Due to the fact that the NCCR is not cooperating, the NDP has decided to have their own members sent to the affected area."
