This rumour is confirmed true and is of high priority – here's why:


More than 23,000 people have been affected by floods as a result of heavy rains across Myanmar so far this month, according to the Disaster Management Department.

Most of the casualties have been in Kachin State in northern Myanmar. More than 15,000 in Myitkyina, Paletwa, Hkamti, Katha and smaller villages have been affected or displaced by floods.

Daw Sanda Hlaing, an officer at the Kachin Disaster Management Department, said 24 relief camps have opened in Myitkyina providing shelter and support to those affected.

She added that although flood waters appear to be receding for now, conditions are not yet safe for those now seeking shelter at the camps to return home.
