SANAA, July 31 (Xinhua) -- At least 127 families have fled their homes in central Yemen over the past week due to landslides and floods, local media reported on Wednesday.

Daily torrential rains throughout the past week have caused floods and triggered landslides on two villages in Ibb province.

Several houses in the villages of Manzil Ghurab and al-Nabijah were partly collapsed due to the landslides.

There were no reports of casualties.

Located in the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula and overlooking the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea, Yemen faces severe weather during its rainy season in this summer. Enditem
