Following hours of heavy rainfall, a landslide dammed up the Vere river late on 13 June 2015. The resulting flood inflicted severe damage on the Tbilisi Zoo, a highway running through the Vere valley, and nearby houses, resulting in at least 12 deaths, including three zoo workers. One of them, a 56-year woman, had recently returned to work after having had an arm amputated two weeks earlier after a tiger mauled it. bout 36 people were admitted for mild-to-moderate injuries; most of them were discharged from hospitals on the same day. Of the 24 people reported as missing as of late 14 June, ten remained unaccountable for on 15 June.[6] More than 40 families were left homeless and 22,000 people were left without electricity.

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.

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.

The floods in Pakistan began in late July 2010, resulting from heavy monsoon rains in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan regions of Pakistan, which affected the Indus River basin. Approximately one-fifth of Pakistan's total land area was underwater, approximately 796,095 square kilometres (307,374 sq mi). According to Pakistani government data, the floods directly affected about 20 million people, mostly by destruction of property, livelihood and infrastructure, with a death toll of close to 2,000. The United States initially provided six US Army CH-47 Chinook helicopters from their duty in Afghanistan. On 12 August, it provided two more CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters to assist Pakistan Army in their relief efforts. The two helicopters are first of 19 helicopters that US Defense Secretary Robert Gates urgently ordered for Pakistan in next few days.
