Continued heavy rainfall causes ooding in Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Sudan
Africa Weather Hazards
Below-average rainfall since mid-May has led to abnormal dryness across eastern Uganda and southwestern Kenya. Moisture deficits are likely to negatively impact cropping and Pastoral activities.
Repeated weeks of very heavy, above-normal rains have oversaturated the ground in parts of Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Sudan. More heavy rain during the next week is likely to cause further flooding.

The Minister for the Interior, Mr. Ambrose Dery has revealed that Ghana is home to nearly fourteen thousand (14,000) refugees who have escaped from ravages of war in the home countries of Liberia, Togo, Sudan, Cote D’Ivoire amongst others.
He has therefore called for the need to tackle the root causes of refugee problems in the sub-region in particular and the Continent as a whole.
The Minister made these statements during the inauguration of the Eleven- Member Ghana Refugee Board in Accra on Monday, July 10, 2017.
In 2012, violent clashes in northern Mali have triggered important waves of displacement into Mauritania. Mbera refugee camp was established in the arid south-east region and now hosts over 51,000 Malian refugees.
Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, refugees continue to flee persistent violence in northern Mali. Last month alone 356 new arrivals were registered in Mbera camp.
