Tropical Storm Chedza (Jan 14 - 22 2015) struck Madagascar after weeks of heavy rainfall, causing rivers to increase and flooding widespread areas of crop fields. In the capital city of Antananarivo, the deluge damaged the main water pump that controlled water levels in the region. The rainfall caused mudslides and damaged roads. Across the country, flooding from Chedza displaced 54,792 people, after destroying 4,430 houses and flooding another 3,442, mostly in Vatovavy-Fitovinany in the southeastern portion. Chedza killed 80 people and caused about $40 million in damage (2015 USD).Later, the storm brought heavy rainfall and strong winds to the mountainous peaks of Réunion. (see tropical storm Chedza Wikipedia page for more information). Featured in this photo report are scenes from the Ankasina Evacuation Centre in Antananarivo, run by the local Red Cross, with the support of the European Commission Humanitarian And and Civil Protection (ECHO). Floods have polluted water sources making access to clean drinking water a major need. Clean water is essential in preventing diseases.

The photographs depict the extensive damage sustained by the island nation of Vanuatu, in the Pacific Ocean, after it was struck by tropical cyclone Pam. The cyclone hit on the evening of 13 March 2015. Pam was classified as a category 5 tropical cyclone on the Australian tropical cyclone scale and the Saffir–Simpson scale. The Guardian described it as the worst natural disasters to have ever been experienced by Vanuatu. Displayed is the devastation that was sustained and the images show uprooted trees, collapsed houses and damaged infrastructure. Estimates by the European Commission say that as much as 80% to 90% of the main island of Efate’s structures were completely or partially damaged. Major damage was also sustained by Kiribati and the Solomon Islands.

More than the equivalent of 3 months rain during 14-18 May 2004 on the Balkans, the highest rainfall recorded since records started 120 years ago. Tamara, as the cyclone was called, caused severe flooding and land slides in Serbia, Bosnia, and to a lesser degree in Croatia, resulting in over 60 deaths, massive destruction of property, infrastructure, and damage to agriculture. Seemingly unprepared, authorities in Serbia and Bosnia were unable to cope alone with large swaths of territory inundated during the cyclone. They quickly requested international help, including via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. Within a few hours, the call was answered by Bulgaria, Germany, Slovenia and Austria. By 36 hours, 6 more EU countries responded. Overall 23 EU members out of 28 aided relief efforts. 3 million Euros, 800 relief workers, and 2 EU Civil Protection Teams were dispatched. On 16 July 2014, France and Slovenia cohosted a donors conference.

Balkan Floods 2014 from Space

Taken on 2014-05-18

More than three months worth of rain fell in just a few days in May 2014 in the Balkan Peninsula of Europe, leading to devastating floods and more than 3,000 landslides. The high water wiped out at least 100,000 structures and homes, killed thousands of livestock animals, and exposed or moved many landmines that were set during 1990s warfare. According to news accounts, more than 40 people have died so far and nearly one million have been displaced and/or cut off from clean water supplies. The flooding was caused by an extra-tropical cyclone (Tamara) that pulled in moisture from the Mediterranean Sea for nearly three days. Much of the water has swollen the Sava River, which cuts across the middle of the peninsula. The event is considered the region’s worst flood in more than 120 years of record-keeping. More than 40 percent of Bosnia and Herzegovina was thought to be in some level of flooding.

Tornado Touchdown in Oklahoma, USA, May 2013

Tornado Touchdown in Oklahoma, USA, May 2013

Taken on 2013-05-31

During the early evening of May 31, 2013, the widest tornado in recorded history occurred over rural areas of Central Oklahoma. Part of a larger weather system that produced dozens of tornadoes over the preceding days, the tornado initially touched down at 6:03 p.m. CDT (2303 UTC) about 8.3 miles (13.4 km) west-southwest of El Reno. The storm rapidly grew in size and became more violent. Remaining over mostly open terrain, the tornado did not impact many structures; however, measurements from mobile Doppler weather radars revealed extreme winds in excess of 296 mph (476 km/h) within the tornado. As it crossed Highway 81, it had grown to a record-breaking width of 2.6 miles (4.2 km). Turning northeastward, the tornado soon weakened. After crossing Interstate 40, the tornado dissipated around 6:43 p.m. CDT (2343 UTC), after tracking for 16.2 miles (26.1 km), avoiding affecting more densely populated areas near and within the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.
