With 89 people already dead in flooding in Khartoum, capital of Sudan, heavy rains that washed away homes and spread waterborne disease were continuing, reported The Courier Mail (23/8/2007, p. 40).

Worst flood in living memory: Sudanese officials said this year’s floods were the worst in living memory with unexpectedly early rains destroy­ing more than 70,000 homes. Heavy flooding in some states had destroyed latrines and polluted water supplies, spreading deadly waterborne diseases like cholera and malaria.
