South Sudan: Flooded counties and affected population (as of 20 September 2013)

Heavy rains over the past weeks have caused flooding in most parts of the country affecting tens of thousands of people. So far, aid organizations have assessed almost 45,000 people to be in need of humanitarian assistance in Lakes, Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Upper Nile, Unity, Warrap and Western Bahr el Ghazal states. They are responding with food, household items, WASH and medical assistance based on assessed needs. Needs assessments are being conducted in other areas that are accessible where flooding has also been reported. Aid organizations face access challenges in attempts to reach people in some affected areas, due to limited road infrastructure and lack of logistics capacity.
