At least 150 people were killed in freak floods in eastern Libya as a result of storm Daniel which has swept the Mediterranean, an official said on Monday. 

Images filmed by residents of the disaster area showed massive mudslides, collapsed buildings and entire neighborhoods submerged under water. 

“At least 150 people were killed as a result of flooding and torrential rains left by storm Daniel in Derna, the Jabal al-Akhdar region and the suburbs of Al-Marj,” Mohamed Massoud, a spokesperson for the Benghazi-based administration in Libya, told AFP.

 “This is besides the massive material damage that struck public and private properties,” he added.
