On this map, the areas exhibiting blue tones (with the exception of the mountain areas) correspond to the areas that have been flooded.

The areas exhibiting red tones correspond to soils presenting a strong excess in moisture content.
Agricultural fields located within such areas are likely to be heavily damaged.

Urban areas exhibiting blue tones correspond to damages suffered by housing.
Such features are particularly apparent west of the main road Kassala-Port Sudan, between Aroma and Eriba.
