This is further confirmed by the change in the vegetation condition with most of the trees especially Neem and Desert dates turning yellow and shading off their leaves, a sign that the dry spell is immanent. The month was also characterized by limited agriculture activity; all households had finished harvesting and stocking their product.

The vegetation condition exhibited increased yellowing and shedding of leaves among Desert dates and Neem caused by increasing temperatures with no appearance of mushrooms and mosses, which is normal.
