At least 14 people have been killed over the past couple of days after unseasonal rainstorms hit the majority of Yemen's southern governorates.
At least 1 000 households are in need of basic services, including at least 90 families in the Marib area and 400 in Taizz.
Local and international humanitarian partners are conducting assessments, but report logistical challenges in reaching those in need due to roads being cut, ECHO reports.
This is the second round of heavy rains to hit Yemen since mid-July. At least 14 people have lost their lives from July 16 to 23 when floods hits the governorates of al-Mahrah, Hadramawt, Shabwa, Abyan, and Al Jawf.
Floods have also destroyed crops, roads, and communications infrastructure.
