Flash Appeal for El Salvador 2009

18 November 2009

The combined effect of Hurricane Ida and a low-pressure system off the Pacific Coast led to heavy rainfall in El Salvador, from Saturday to Sunday November 7-8, causing severe flooding and landslides in seven of the country’s 14 departments.  In just a few hours, 355mm of rainfall was registered in the most adversely affected areas, not far off the 400mm registered during four days of Hurricane Mitch (1998).

The arrival of Tropical Depression 12E in El Salvador on 10 October 2011 brought unprecedented heavy rainfall, accumulating more rain than Hurricane Mitch in 1998, and exceeding rain levels registered in the last 50 years. Due to the persistence of the storm, two low-pressure systems were generated, leading to torrential rains for more than ten days, causing severe flooding and landslides in 181 municipalities of most of the country’s 14 departments, affecting more than 500,000 people and flooding 2,000 km2, equivalent to 10% of the country.
