Since late June 2014, seasonal rainfall across many parts of Sudan has been above-average, with some local areas experiencing rainfall surpluses in excess of 100mm within 30 days. On 17 Jun, some 750 people were affected by heavy rain that destroyed 37 houses and a health care clinic in Tilo IDP settlement in South Kordofan's capital Kadugli. More flooding in the same area on 4 Jul affected almost 3,200 people. At least 234 houses were destroyed, another 143 damaged and 150 latrines rendered dysfunctional. The South Kordofan's State Government has requested international humanitarian organisations based in South Kordofan to support Government efforts in providing the flood-affected people with food, non-food items and shelter.
