Reports from the upstream stations at Bulo Burti and Belet Weyne indicate increased river levels at the two stations and this may be translated down to Jowhar leading to a further increase of river levels at Jowhar. Following these events, there is a probability of flooding in Jowhar and the low lying downstream reaches.
Additional field reports from CEFA indicated that the Chinese canal; which was supposed to provide flood relief is not currently operational. This might further complicate the situation downstream. SWALIM is closely monitoring this situation and will update you if there are any further changes.
