The US has provided $15.5 million worth of humanitarian aid to Libya after the Storm Daniel flooding that hit northeastern Libya in mid-September, according to the US embassy in Libya.

In a brief statement on its X account, the embassy reaffirmed Washington's continued support for the people of Derna and other Libyan communities affected by the floods, indicating that the initiative aims to help meet the essential needs that many flood victims continue to have.

The floods triggered by the Mediterranean storm killed at least 4,352 people and displaced more than 43,000, while eight thousand others are still missing, according to UN estimates.
