More than 2,000 people in Libya are feared dead in severe flooding, according to a Libyan leader, as Storm Daniel swept through the eastern part of the country.

The head of Libya’s eastern parliament-backed government, Osama Hamad, announced the death toll on Monday.

“Osama Hamad said in press statements that residential neighborhoods disappeared after the torrents swept them into the sea along with thousands of their residents, and the situation is catastrophic and unprecedented in Libya,” LANA reported.

Footage shared on social media shows submerged cars, collapsed buildings and torrents of water rushing through streets.

Hamad called on medical personnel and medical assistants to go to the badly affected city of Derna in eastern Libya to provide assistance immediately.
