The National Meteorological Center said on Sunday that there was a very heavy flow of water in some local valleys in north-eastern Libya after extremely heavy rainfall in the region.

In a statement, the Center called on all citizens in the areas of Al-Jabal Al-Akhdar and the Eastern Coast to take great care while passing on the roadways, due to the huge accumulation of water in low areas and the flooding of some valleys.

The eastern region is witnessing strong wind fluctuations which led to heavy rainfall, causing great damage, particularly in the city of Al-Bayda where a state of emergency has been declared.
