INTRODUCTION

Following the National Meteorology Agency (NMA) forecast for the 2014 kiremt season (July to September), the DRMFSS-led national Flood Task Force, constituting NMA, sector line ministries, UN Agencies, NGOs, and donors, was reactivated to closely monitor the situation and timely facilitate preparedness and response activities in areas likely to be affected.

This Flood Alert summarizes the probable weather condition for the kiremt season and identifies the areas likely to be affected in the country to prompt timely mitigation, preparedness and response measures. The Alert will be further updated based on revised NMA forecast for the season and the development of the situation on the ground. The Alert will also form the basis for flood contingency plan preparation
