Floods Heighten Food Crisis in Niger | Africa | English: "Floods in Niger are compounding an already urgent food crisis in the region, as the Niger River reaches its highest level in more than 80 years.
Floods in Niger are worsening the West African country's food crisis, says the communications director for the Red Cross Society of Niger, Amadou Tidjani Adamou.
Adamou says that homes, latrines and rice fields have been destroyed in the recent flooding.
He added that the people living the area rely heavily on the rice fields that have been destroyed, and there will be consequences for the surrounding populations."
