In the past 2 months, Benin has experienced one of the worst floods since the 1960s. Even in the lake districts of southern Benin, where villagers are used to floods and live in houses on stilts, the water levels have risen so high that most people had to flee their homes. In the villages that were hardest hit, school infrastructures have suffered greatly, destroying buildings and teaching materials. Available video includes a narrated news package and b-roll.
