Sudan declares 3-month state of emergency over deadly floods

Floods have killed 99 people and caused total and partial collapse of more than 100,000 homes, says local media.

...

The rates of floods and rain for this year exceeded the records set during the years 1946 and 1988, with expectations of continued rising indicators, minister Lena el-Sheikh added.

...

Sudan's rainy season begins in June and continues through to October, which means the country experiences floods and torrential rains annually.

The committee warned on Friday the country may face more rains, adding that the water level in the Blue Nile rose to a record 17.58 metres.

I think you live in north-west Florida Tor. There's flooding in Florida because of 'stalled' tropical storm Sally. Are you okay?

Quote
Significant coastal flooding has been affecting much of the Southeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. coast since September 15, during the high “king tide” period associated with the New Moon of September 17. The king tides have been exacerbated by big swells from Hurricane Teddy, high runoff from the heavy rains from Hurricane Sally the previous week, and powerful northeast winds associated with a strong area of high-pressure positioned over New England.

It seems a hurricane doesn't have to get anywhere near the Carolinas to flood their coast these days.
