The Turkish disaster management agency AFAD on Sunday said it sent 850 tons of humanitarian aid materials to flood-hit Libya.
The agency in a statement said it continues its efforts to heal the wounds of Libyans hit by the Sept. 11 disaster.
It added that aid supplies sent earlier were delivered via both airplanes and ships, and Sunday’s consignment was loaded from Izmir’s Alsancak Port.
Floodwaters resulting from Storm Daniel contributed to significant damage across northeastern Libya, affecting housing, health facilities, water networks, and other infrastructure, according to the UN. At least 4,345 people died, 8,540 went missing and 42,000 were displaced due to the disaster.
Mass destruction in Derna
Libya’s eastern city of Derba was hardest hit by devastating floods caused by Storm Daniel, leaving thousands of people dead.
Officials said at least 5,200 people have been killed and 5,000 others are still unaccounted for in Derna alone following the deadly storm and floods.
Adding to the tragedy in Derna was the collapse of two dams, dragging large parts of the coastal city into the sea.
The city is bisected by the Wadi Derna, a seasonal river that flows from the highlands to the south and is normally protected from flooding by dams.
