21 September 2013
Based on the information available on 21 September, we predict that the flood of 2013 will be as high as in 2010 and 2012. The prediction of the peak flood has not changed any more since 3 September and it is very unlikely that it will change much during the coming weeks.
The water level in Mopti on 21 September amounted to 597 cm. We expect now that the water level in Mopti will increase still about 40 cm in the coming three or four weeks to reach its peak in the second half of October. The flood will reach its peak in Akka in mid-November and in Diré in late November.
