Extensive flooding throughout Djibouti City could occur.  Low-lying areas of Djibouti are particularly susceptible to flash floods.   

Actions to Take:

  • Remain indoors and off the roads.
  • If you encounter water in the road, do not attempt to cross the area with your vehicle.
  • Monitor local media for updates.
