News: Floods At Start of Southern Africa's Rainy Season

Mozambique flooding one year ago... A repeat waiting to happen in 2008?Floods in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Zambia are affecting at least 16,000 people, possibly of thousands more. We are only at the start of Southern Africa's rainy season, which typically lasts from November to April. This year, as happened in 2007, floods are occurring earlier than usual in some countries. Let's hope we are not heading for a new regional emergency as happened one year ago. (full report and news article)
