A death toll rising above 5,000 is reported from the north eastern city of Derna from catastrophic flooding in the wake of Mediterranean storm Daniel. The city lacked the infrastructure to withstand the 414.1 millimeters of rain that the city received from Sunday to Monday.
• Lord Christ, we pray for all who have lost loved ones and are suffering from storm Daniel and the lack of infrastructure in Libya. Safely guide the search and rescue teams who are working tirelessly to save lives and recover bodies. We also continue to pray for those in Morocco suffering the effects of the earthquake. May the international community increase their aid to the victims in Morocco and Libya.
Lord in Your mercy… hear our prayer
