Flash Flood,Sudan: Gedaref State On 21 July 2021, a flash flood affected Al Fao locality in the Gedaref State due to heavy rainfall in the Al Butanah catchment area, which extends from North Darfur to North Kordofan and White Nile states. 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. White Nile State On 21 July 2021, a flash flood in Um-Rimta locality affected an unknown number of households.

Flash Flood,Kyrgyzstan: The flood and mudflows hit in the Suzak district of Jalal-Abad region due to heavy rain.

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.
