A number of coastal cities and villages in eastern Libya sent distress calls after communications that were cut off earlier due to Storm Daniel were restored, while search and rescue operations continue in the stricken city of Derna.

At a time when estimates indicate that thousands of people are missing and thousands of bodies have been recovered in the city of Derna alone, residents of other areas located on the eastern coast and approximately 80 kilometers from Derna speak of catastrophic conditions and dozens of missing people and victims as a result of the floods.

Storm Daniel cut off communications and electricity from the areas it struck in the east of the country, and the coastal roads linking the cities of the eastern coast below the Green Mountain collapsed, causing them to be isolated.

However, with the return of electricity and communications, the cities of Sousse, located 80 kilometers west of Derna, and Al-Mukhaili, located 120 kilometers southwest of Derna, launched a distress call after the floods swept away a number of homes, some of them with their residents.
