"My children and I spent a sleepless night yesterday because our uncovered tent was full of water under the heavy rains. Like many other displaced people, we were forced to remain standing throughout yesterday's night without sleeping till this moment."

"Many families left their houses after war escalation in Hodeidah's outskirts, seeking for a safe life for their children here in the liberated areas. But unfortunately, we found no safety here and left in uncovered tents under the heavy rains and high winds." 
Yemen's National Meteorological Center warned that heavy rains with high winds may continue to hit the southern coast and the adjacent areas.
Earlier in the day, Yemeni Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik ordered the local authorities to immediately deal with the damage and consequences.
