Sudan Dam Collapse Causes Wave Of Displacement


A sudden collapse of a dam in Sudan’s Blue Nile State has destroyed 600 houses, local Sudanese media reported on Friday. The local official warned against a big wave of displacement in the area, noting that the Bout dam constitutes the backbone for the area where there is a large market and more than nine basic education schools. Annually during June and July, Sudan witnesses waves of floods due to heavy rains.
