Torrential rainfall in Sudan has caused flooding across much of the country since 4 August.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that 14 of the nation's 18 states have experienced flooding, affecting more than 134,000 people. 14 people have been reported killed in the most recent floods in Kassala, El Gedaref, and River Nile States.

Areas on the Nile Basin have particularly been affected by the floods, and it is expected the water levels will continue to rise as the rain continues.
