At least six people were killed as heavy rains and floods hit two states in northern Sudan during the past hours, Sudan Tribune reported Friday.

"Four children were killed when high floods swept their home near a valley, some 50 km south of Merowe town in the northern state," the report said.

The floods also caused damage to farms along the valley and the implants at Al-Qurair as well as the death of large numbers of livestock.

Meanwhile, at least two women were killed and some others were injured in Nahral-Neel State, while the traffic was temporarily disrupted on the main roads of Abu Hamad and Al-Tahady which link the state with capital Khartoum, the report noted.

It added that the electricity power supply was cut off in the Al-Damar and Atbara localities on Thursday evening after the heavy rains, flood and high wind damaged the main power supply nets.
