Somalia - At least 15 people have died in Somaliland after heavy rains caused by tropical cyclone Sagar which landed in the Horn of Africa over the weekend.
Situated at the northern tip of east Africa on the Gulf of Aden, Somaliland broke away from Somalia in 1991.
"In the last 24 hours, heavy stormy rains killed 15 people in the districts of Lughaya and Baki," Abdirahman Ahmed Ali, governor of the Awdal area told reporters on Sunday.
"The Somaliland government has started giving emergency help to the victims."
Meanwhile in Puntland, a semi-autonomous northeastern region of Somalia, storms caused by the cyclone took away two men and their car from a valley in the city of Bosaso, Yusuf Mohamed Waeys, the governor of Bari in Puntland told Reuters on Sunday.
