Torrential floods sweep Morocco days after the devastating earthquake

سيول جارفة تجتاح شرقي المغرب بعد أيام من الزلزال المدمر

On Friday, torrential torrential rains swept through the Midelt province in eastern Morocco, days after the country suffered the most devastating earthquake in its history for a century.

Strong storms hit the Moroccan city of Oujda, disrupting traffic and uprooting many trees.

In some clips, floods appeared sweeping away some cars, despite their owners' attempts to control them and pull them out of the flood's path, to no avail.

The earthquake that struck Morocco left the residents of the affected areas without roofs to shelter them, and without water or modern means of transportation, forcing them to return to old ways.

The Moroccan Gendarmerie continues relief and rescue operations in the areas affected by the earthquake.

Helicopters are used in many evacuations of casualties in rugged mountainous areas that are inaccessible to ambulances.

This earthquake is the most massive in terms of death toll in the North African country since 1960 and the strongest in 60 years.
