Continued heavy rainfall causes ooding in Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Sudan
Africa Weather Hazards
Below-average rainfall since mid-May has led to abnormal dryness across eastern Uganda and southwestern Kenya. Moisture deficits are likely to negatively impact cropping and Pastoral activities.
Repeated weeks of very heavy, above-normal rains have oversaturated the ground in parts of Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Sudan. More heavy rain during the next week is likely to cause further flooding.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is appealing for US$421.2 million to help provide meaningful alternatives to refugees and others undertaking dangerous journeys to Europe.
The number of refugees and migrants arriving in Europe from Africa through Libya is increasing and, with it, the risks they face crossing the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea. In the first six months of this year, 2,171 refugees and migrants died or went missing in the Central Mediterranean, many others are believed to have died trying to cross into Libya.

With the situation becoming ever more pressing along the Central Mediterranean Route, the Commission is today setting out a series of immediate measures that can be taken by the EU Member States, the Commission and EU Agencies, and Italy itself.
The Desert Locust situation continued to remain calm during June. Preventive control operations were undertaken in Algeria and Iran where small-scale breeding had occurred. Elsewhere, only low numbers of locusts were present in the interior of Sudan. However, unusually early and good rains fell during June throughout most of the summer breeding areas in the northern Sahel of West Africa and Sudan as well as along both sides of the Indo-Pakistan border.

SUICIDE BLAST KILLS SEVEN, HALTS AID MISSIONS
A suicide bomber on 2 June killed nine people and wounded 30 others in Kolofata area in Cameroon’s Far North region. The attack was the 18th of its kind since January and prompted the suspension of UN missions to the area. Insecurity and persistent Boko Haram attacks are the main hindrance to aid delivery in the region. On 26 May, a suicide bomber struck Kolofata as a mission by UN agencies was about to arrive.
CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC
An IAEA project shows that significant reserves of good quality water are available in Africa’s drought-prone Sahel region. Pollution is still limited and has not yet become a serious threat to these vital resources. The findings, compiled in five reports published today, are the result of a four-year Agency effort to help 13 countries use isotopic techniques to assess groundwater origin and quality in five shared aquifers and basins, providing the first broad overview of the region’s groundwater supplies.
