Torrential rains in the last hours in Algeria have flooded several districts of the capital, Algiers and other cities in the country’s north, cutting off traffic and disrupting tram lines.
Local sources say at least two people have died in floods caused by torrential rains in Algeria.
Images shared on social networks showed vehicles stuck in water in and around Algiers and its outskirts.
Videos published by the special page Info Traffic Algeria showed abandoned or semi-submerged cars, scenes of suffering of civilians stuck in water, problems in the road network and blocked tunnels at some points in the center of the capital.
On its official Facebook page, the Civil Protection noted various aid interventions on the roads in both Algiers and Tizi Uzu (Cabilly region) and interventions in other cities, such as in Boomerdes, Relizen, Klef and Oran.
Floods are frequent in Algeria at this time of year, especially in the southern cities, with the river view overflowing each fall.
Three days earlier, meteorological services warned of strong winds and gusty rain in the south of the country, affecting the cities of Aurgala and Ilizi, among others.
