Over 7000 persons have been displaced by floods following the rise in water levels in Lake Albert in Kanara Sub County in Ntoroko District. Hundreds of semi-permanent houses that were submerged by the waters have since crumbled. A few others are still submerged. 

Most of the houses were built close to the lake shores. The flood victims comprising mainly mothers and children have taken refuge in schools and churches. Majority of the displaced households have called for resettlement. 

Rwangara and Ntoroko HCIII’s in Kanara are experiencing large volumes of patients mainly suffering from malaria and abdominal illnesses. Though the effects of the floods are still visible, fishing activities on the landing sites are still ongoing for those who can. Our reporter visited the area and now brings you pictures portraying the devastating effects of the flood across the sub county.
