KHARTOUM – As many as 20 people were killed and 13 others injured as a result of heavy rains and floods in various cities in Sudan.
Heavy rain usually hits Sudan between June and October every year. This week, the country is experiencing heavy rain.
“As many as 21 people were killed and 13 others injured when 3,945 houses were destroyed or badly damaged,” said a statement from the Sudan Civil Defense Agency.
The Sudanese news agency (SUNA) also reported that civil defense had sent aid by helicopter to 2,000 workers at a gold mine in the east of the country.
The relief team also sent food and medical assistance, including antibiotics and medicine to the flood victims.
Last week, the United Nations (UN) warned more than 50,000 people would be affected by the flooding.
The flood disaster made the country suffer even more when the corona outbreak was still out of control in the country.
