1 October 2013
Based on the information available on 1 October, 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 will not change anymore.
The water level in Mopti amounted to 603 cm on 1 October. The water level has increased only a few cm last week and most likely it will still increase some cm the next week and reach its peak half October. The water level in the northern half of the Delta will still go up until November in Akka and Dire.
