In this regard, does the Nile flood anymore?
It flooded onto the desert land because of of the rain and melting snow causing a torrent of water to invade the river's banksfrom the Ethiopian Mountains. Now, the Nile doesn't flood anymore because of the construction of the Aswan dam in the 1960's (see page 11). The picture above was when the Nile flooded.
Likewise, what was built to stop the river Nile flooding? The first Aswan dam provided valuable irrigation during droughts but could not hold back the annual flood of the mighty Nile River. In the 1950s, Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser envisioned building a new dam across the Nile, one large enough to end flooding and bring electric power to every corner of Egypt.
Similarly one may ask, when did the Nile last flood?
orty-two years ago, in June 1964, I and my four-man Egyptian film crew set out from Cairo to capture on film the very last Nile flood that would come to Egypt. From the moment the flood began in Ethiopia, we followed its progress for 3200 kilometers (2000 mi).
What are the 3 stages of the annual flooding of the Nile River called?
The three stages of the Egyptian flood cycle were Akhet, the time of the Nile flood, Peret, the sowing time, and Shemu, the time of harvest.
