August 1, 2007 - Floods in Sudan

February 19, 2008
Rivers across much of Sudan continued to rise under the onslaught of unusually heavy wet-season rains at the end of July 2007. The rain started in early July and was expected to continue on and off through the end of the rainy season in September. The Government of Sudan expected that the floods would peak in August, but warned that the Nile and its tributaries were already on the brink of critical levels on July 23.

The MODIS on NASA's Terra satellite captured the main false-color image of flooding along a tributary of the White Nile on July 21, 2007.
