Seasonal Flood Forecast
The Eastern Nile is one of the places in the world with recurrent Flooding.
Populate areas in the region are significantly affected by flash and
riverine flooding in most of the years. The most flood affected areas in
Ethiopia for instance, are the Dembiya and Fogera floodplains around Lake
Tana (upper Blue Nile) and the Gambella area in south west of the country.
The Blue and Main Nile River reaches in Sudan are also frequently affected
along with the downstream Nile Delta region in Egypt.
Nile Technical Regional Office (ENTRO) works to mitigate this human
suffering through various means. One of its fast track projects – the Flood
Preparedness and Early Warning project (FPEW) was launched in 2007 and has
been providing assistance to national, regional and local authorities
through early warnings and capacity building for preparedness.
main objective of this FPEW project is to enhance regional collaboration and
improves national capacity in mitigation, forecasting, early warning,
emergency preparedness, and response to floods in the EN basin. The early
warning information include: expected flood extents and inundation levels,
information used for safe and efficient reservoir operation in the whole

Three Days rainfall forecast
generated over the EN catchments (regions) using Eta model is displayed as
of 24 hours accumulated precipitation. The next 3 consecutive days spatial
rainfall distribution imagery data observations and the accumulated rainfall
estimates across EN river systems are presented.
