Heavy rains in late October have caused widespread flooding in Somalia, displacing close to 270,000 people. The worst affected region is Hiiraan, in central Somalia, where Beledweyne district is flooded. People there have left their homes and have gone to seek shelter in higher areas.

In 2011, a humanitarian delegation from Somaliland donated relief aid for 9,000 drought-displaced families in the Somalia capital, Mogadishu

Somaliland sent food aid and other non food items to its Somali brothers affected by the famine in Somalia that time.
