Nigeria’s government says 76 people drowned when a ferry boat capsized in a flooded river in the southern state of Anambra. It’s the latest disaster to flow from a wetter-than-normal rainy season that many Nigerians say has led to the worst flooding in at least a generation. Officials say about 500 people have died as a direct result from flooding this year, with 1.4 million people displaced by floodwaters.
