A regional coordinator for the National Emergency Management Agency said Monday that the victims include a mother and her 3-year-old child. Their house caved in during Sunday’s six-hour-long rains in Kari, a town that sits along a stream in Bauchi state.

Aliyu Sambo said Kari Primary School had been converted into a camp to provide relief to about 1,800 people who had been displaced by the floods.
