Yearbook 2012

Comoros. Around 75,000 people, one-tenth of all Comoros, were hit by rainfall in April, which caused floods and landslides. The weather was the worst in decades; for five days in April it rained as much as for a full year in normal cases. According to countryaah, four people died and about 150 were injured. The three largest islands, Grande Comore, Anjouan and Mohéli, suffered from drinking water shortages, electricity and telecommunications interruptions as well as destroyed roads, housing and crops. About 10,000 people were forced to leave their homes.

2012 Comoros

During a donor conference in September, the government sought $ 19 million in aid to rebuild the country after the natural disaster. The Comoros were supported by the UN and South Africa, among others.
