After severe flooding and heavy rains in Egypt, the Nile River has turned a murky brown.
Significant amounts of silt and soil have poured into the waterway due to the rains and flooding. The brown muck has led to the closure of several main water treatment facilities. This has also disrupted water supplies to residents.
It looks a lot like sewage ...
So much for a picturesque Nile cruise ...
Egyptians are trying to pick up the pieces
At least 29 people have been killed and more than 70 have been injured throughout the county.
Egypt's health minister said South Sinai, the Red Sea, Sohag and Bani Suef in Upper Egypt were affected. Relief supplies began reaching the hardest hit areas on Tuesday.
Streets became rivers
Only boats could still park in this parking garage
People tried to drive

"Minister Kamal el-Wazeer, head of the engineering body of the armed forces, oversees the dealings with the after effects of the floods and food distribution in Ras Gharib."
