Lighting strike kills one in Dadaab

By Yussuf Hamza:


Reports reaching us from Dadaab refugee camps indicate that a young girl died after she was struck by lightning. The area is currently witnessing heavy downpours.

Family members confirmed to Nepjournal that the young girl died on the spot after the lightning struck her on the head.

Several other people sustained injuries in the incident which complicates matters for the refugees some of whom have been displaced after their makeshift houses became waterlogged as a result of the heavy rains.
