According to reports received over 150 houses in village 16, village 14, Al-Abhath, Haj Al-Sayed, and Tiako villages have been affected by the flooding. No reports of deaths or injuries have been received so far. The main water source in AlFao town and the electric power sub-station of Al Fao locality are overflooded. In addition, three schools, government offices, and the main market area have been affected by the flash flood. The area remains difficult to access given the flood’s impact on the main road between Gedaref city and Harira village within the Al Fao locality. Currently, the resistance committee is conducting headcounts and more information will be shared soon. There are over 333,800 people living in Al Fao locality of whom over 70,100 people are in crisis and above levels of food security, according to Sudan IPC June 2021.

The state-level emergency committee held a meeting on 22 July to discuss the situation and more information will be shared soon. The international NGO Plan International and the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCs) are present in the locality. According to the 2021 Sudan Humanitarian Needs Overview, there are about 176,000 people living in Um-Rimta of whom over 9,200 are under emergency (IPC Phase 4) levels of food security and over 27,400 people are under crisis (IPC Phase 3) levels. 
DR-2021-000089-IRN Drought Iran, Islamic Republic Drought conditions have affected a large region of Central and Western Asia, including the majority of Iran, with varying degrees of severity depending on the area and local magnitude of the event. In general, safe and sufficient water supply, agriculture and electrical power are at stake, while food security and households’ income are also at risk in the most vulnerable areas. Long-term records show that the entire area receives no meaningful precipitation between June and October, with very little variation around this figure. As a result, the accumulated deficit up to May 2021 will persist until the end of the year, potentially worsening and spreading drought impacts throughout the region in the coming months.  
FR-2021-000088-IRQ Fire Iraq A fire broke out in the coronavirus ward of Al-Hussein Teaching Hospital in the southern city of Nasiriyah in southern Iraq has killed at least 92 people, injured more than 110, left 20 missing, and affected around 270 others, according to health officials, on Tuesday the 13th of July.

CE-2021-000086-ZAF Complex Emergency South Africa Urban violence which commenced in South Africa from 9 to 17 July 2021, in response to the arrest of former President Jacob Zuma. The riots triggered wider rioting and looting fuelled by job layoffs and economic inequality worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic. The civil unrest began in the province of KwaZulu-Natal on the evening of 9 July, and spread to the province of Gauteng on the evening of 11 July 2021.

DR-2021-000085-KAZ Drought Kazakhstan In the Republic of Kazakhstan, the heatwave that began in June 2021 in the Southern and Western regions of the country (Kyzylorda, Mangystau and Turkestan regions) led to record temperatures up to 46.5℃ (recorded on July 7) in the region with a norm of 28.3℃. This has seriously affected the main livestock farms. According to the local meteorological service "Kazhydromet", the removal of hot and dry air masses from the region of Iran preserves abnormally hot weather on the territory of most of the Republic of Kazakhstan. As a result of the abnormally high air temperature in various regions of the country, rapid runoff of rivers and reservoirs occurs. Also, the soil dries up to a depth of 50 cm, which caused the lack of vegetation and natural feed on pastures. Based on the impossibility of grazing livestock, the minimum reserves of feed and drink are exhausted, which leads to mass death. To date, the death of more than 2000 units of livestock has been recorded (in these regions) and this figure is increasing every day. In addition to the mass death of livestock, crops and agricultural crops are also being actively destroyed, which can potentially lead to a major food crisis in several regions of the country, where cattle are a key object of vital activity due to the geographical and climatic features of the southern and western regions of Kazakhstan. The death of livestock and agricultural crops in the three regions of the Republic of Kazakhstan (Mangistau, Kyzylorda and Turkestan regions) causes serious damage to the local population, since it is the only source of income and vital activity.

OT-2021-000077-CHE Other Switzerland Migration and refugee flows from sub-Saharan and North Africa, the Middle East and into Europe are among the most complex in the world, with acute humanitarian needs for many people on the move. Official data sources indicate that the unprecedented effect of COVID-19 on global mobility has not halted migration flows through the three northward trans-Mediterranean routes (Eastern, Central and Western Mediterranean), nor the Atlantic route from West Africa to the Canary Islands. The central Mediterranean route, from North Africa (primarily Libya but also Tunisia and Algeria) to Italy which continues to be one of the most active and dangerous routes for people crossing to Europe by sea. Since 2014, the Central Mediterranean has become the world’s deadliest migratory sea routes with over 35,000 lives lost in the past seven years (IOM, 2021). In 2020, 983 people lost their lives on the Central Mediterranean route and in the first six months of 2021 that figures stands at 677 lives lost (IOM, 2021). The actual number of fatalities recorded on migratory routes is in all likelihood much higher largely due to unreported and “invisible” shipwrecks.
