On the night of February 9-10, residents of the northern neighborhoods of Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi, woke up to grieve for themselves and their fellow citizens.

Torrential rains caused a destructive mix of water and sediments to flood these areas, causing 76 deaths, including some children, and 708 injuries.
