The Ministry of Water Resources, Irrigation and Electricity in Sudan announced that the Blue Nile, the main river of the Nile, recorded the highest level of water in the last 100 years, surpassing the flood in 1946. The levels of the White Nile and Blue Nile was reported at 17.14 meters in Khartoum, a record high due to heavy rain in Ethiopia. Water level showed an increase above the annual average in the Blue Nile, due to rain and floods during the past few days, Director of the Nile Forecast Center of the Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, Eman Sayed, confirmed. The benefit to Sudan from the rainwater is limited, she added, the flat Sudanese terrain prevents water from reaching the riverbed.
