"Some of them were killed because of the collapse of houses and some because of floods," Sulaiman Abdul Jabbar, acting undersecretary of Sudan's Health Ministry, was quoted as saying.
The rains and floods have affected 9,260 houses in 16 Sudanese states, where 595 houses completely collapsed and 3,317 partially did, Jabbar revealed.
In addition, 127 public utilities, including mosques, schools, health centers and institutions, were affected, he added.
The heavy rains across Sudan have also cut off main roads, including the one linking the northern town of El Obeid with the capital Khartoum.
