Consequences of ‘Daniel’ in Libya: Boats Used to Cross Desert Route

Devastating Floods Engulf Eastern Libya

In the eastern part of Libya, the Al-Makhili road, a stretch of 251 kilometers through the desert, has transformed into a vast water pool due to unexpected heavy rains. This road, which once connected the Al-Tamimi area in the east to the city of Al-Marj in the west, with Al-Makhili village as the midpoint, is now submerged in water. The rising water levels have made it nearly impossible for vehicles to pass, leaving the village of Al-Makhili completely isolated from the rest of the regions.

Emergency Response Amidst Catastrophe

Locals have been calling for help since the onset of this catastrophe, leading to the Roads and Bridges Department opening new routes to manage the situation. However, due to the relentless need for rescue operations, support, and assistance, teams from the Libyan National Army have been forced to use boats to reach the water-logged village, as seen in a video clip.

Draining the Wadi Gaza Dam

Approximately sixty kilometers east of Benghazi city, the draining process of the Wadi Gaza Dam, filled with floodwaters, is nearing completion. The main gate of the dam had malfunctioned, raising local and international concerns about the risk of the dam collapsing due to the immense water pressure and the inability to drain it properly. The Reconstruction Committee, affiliated with the government assigned by the House of Representatives, is overseeing the drainage process. More than 5.3 million cubic meters of water are being drained into the Mediterranean Sea.

The Disrepair of Infrastructure: A Crisis Unveiled

The committee has attributed the malfunction of the dam’s main gate to previous instances of theft and sabotage. This includes the stealing of hydraulic equipment, oil tanks, and the dam’s electrical system. This unfortunate incident underscores the infrastructure challenges in Libya and emphasizes the urgent need for improved maintenance and protection of vital facilities.

Infrastructure Challenges: A Wake-Up Call

This crisis paints a clear picture of the deteriorating state of Libya’s infrastructure. It highlights the urgent need for improved maintenance and protection of essential facilities. The current situation demands immediate attention from both local and international entities to prevent future disasters and ensure the safety and well-being of the Libyan people.
