Gentiny Ngobila, the governor of Kinshasa, is touring the city while the heads of various municipalities are declaring the extent of their losses to the media.

More than 30 people died in the Mont-Ngafula municipality alone, its leader Alidor Tshibanda has told Top Congo FM.

The UN-sponsored Radio Okapi reported at least 34 dead across the whole city as of midday. But it is feared that the number of casualties will rise in the coming hours.

National Road 1 which connects some 12 million Kinshasa residents to the closest port is partially submerged and eroded, and one-third of the capital is experiencing water outages according to a spokesman of the water utility.
