SITUATION OVERVIEW

Flood waters started to recede in most of Sudan, following several weeks of torrential downpours that have caused deaths, displacement, and massive destructions to key infrastructure and livelihoods across the country. At least 155 people lost their lives and the number of people critically affected reached over 875,000 as of 6 October, according to the Government’s Humanitarian Aid Commission. Blue Nile, Khartoum, North Darfur, Sennar, and West Darfur states were particularly hit and more than 150,000 refugees and internally displaced people are amongst those affected, according to UNHCR.
