Sudan | The `Nile` is the highest level in a century, and unprecedented floods displace thousands of people and 88 deaths

Weather of Arabia - The water of the Nile River continues to flow to some neighborhoods of the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, after the water level and its main branches rose to a record level, which is the highest in 100 years and by more than 17 meters.

 

And it caused the destruction of dozens of homes and the displacement of hundreds of citizens, as flood waters completely submerged the Wad Ramli area, about 40 kilometers north of Khartoum, forcing the residents of the area to flee to a nearby temporary camp .
