Southern Africa Humanitarian Bulletin: Issue 06 | October 2012
In line with the original SARCOF forecast, the latest SADC CSC update predicts normal to above-normal rainfall for most of the region, with significant exceptions.
The whole of Madagascar is now expected to receive above-normal to normal rainfall, increasing the chances of flooding.
The first tropical cyclone this season – Anais – formed on 12 October and dissipated by 19 October without making landfall.
Early flooding in South Africa led to the Declaration of Provincial Disaster in the Eastern Cape.
