South Sudan: Impact of floods
Created: 27/10/2022 +


Since August, flash and riverine floods have been severely affecting South Sudan, as is typical during the rainy season (April–November). Most of the country had below-average rainfall in June–July. In early August, Jonglei, Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Upper Nile, and Western Bahr el Ghazal states began recording normal to above-average rainfall. The extent of flooding more than doubled between early August and early October, from 22,000km2 of South Sudan’s landmass to 48,000km2.
