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.
