Floods in Sudan

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies has issued an urgent appeal for almost $1.72 million CA as Sudan faces the prospect of its worst flood season in almost two decades.

Weeks of unseasonably heavy rain have already caused the Nile River and other seasonal rivers to overflow, affecting people across ten of the country’s 26 states. With the season expected to run until mid-October, meteorological organizations in the region are predicting that as many as 2.4 million people across 16 states could be affected, with areas in the north and east expected to bear the brunt of the damage.
