This was one of the most powerful earthquakes Morocco had seen in over 100 years and the deadliest since 1960. Some had the opportunity to get out early, but a swarm of survivors were waiting to be saved from the destruction. This area, about 2,400 km away from Morocco, experienced one of the worst floods across Africa. The streets in Libya were inundated with cars, homes, and people as they were carried far away from their homes. These two disasters have been discussed internationally and are bringing light to issues with infrastructure in areas that are storm prone.
