370,000 Flee Flooding in Somalia

Flooding in Somalia has sent over 370,000 people fleeing their homes.

Thousands of people are either living in camps or out in the open as flooding ravages the African nation. Many remain trapped in flooded areas.

Officials say at least 20 people are dead.

The weeks-long flooding event has damaged or destroyed basic infrastructure. Roads have been washed away and farmland is underwater.

The United Nations is calling for action.
