Journey To Science
Last month rainfall in Africa is causing 25 times more deaths than Hurricane Harvey. Harvey had a Death count of about 70 deaths, so that would put African flooding at about 1750 deaths. A factor that may contribute to the higher death toll could be disease brought from waste and extremely warm temperatures. Another issue with African floods compare to those brought by Harvey is the ability for the areas to clean and restore damages. One official said "If we had working drainage systems, this would not happen."
