WINDHOEK, March 4 (Xinhua) -- A police search team was on Saturday searching for two people who were missing after being swept away by flood in Erongo region, west Namibia.
Two grade-12 pupils and a baker from Omaruru about 200 kilometers from Windhoek were swept away on Saturday morning. One pupil was later rescued, police said.
Most parts of Namibia that had previously suffered a three-year dry spell received heavy rainfall that left homes and schools flooded.
Seven schools have so far been abandoned after classrooms were submerged, while some villagers have to be relocated to higher ground.
No deaths or injuries have been reported by now though from the areas in the north of the country.
