Created: 09/09/2022 +


Since the rainy season started in June, heavy rains have been causing flash floods across Sudan, affecting 16 of the 18 states in the country. As at 20 August, the cumulative rainfall was over 100% higher than the long-term average in central, western, and eastern Sudan. As at 5 September, the floods had killed more than 100 people, affected more than 278,500 people across the country, and totally or partially damaged over 58,600 houses. The risk of further flooding remains high, as the Sudanese rainy season typically lasts through September, with rainfall peaking in August–September.
