MBABANE, 25 July (IRIN) - The unreliability of the weather forecast is an old joke. But in Southern Africa, where cyclones and droughts have wreaked havoc, the ability of national weather services to coordinate and properly analyse data collection is deadly serious.
"Daily weather information is well disseminated in the 14 countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), and to a certain extent understood, but it is debatable whether [the advice] is followed," SADC consultant Sipho Dlamini told IRIN.

Highlights

The main 2002/03 rainy season has come to an end in most of the country. The season has been marked by erratic rains, with long dry spells and periods of intense rainfall brought by tropical storms. For the season as a whole, rainfall totals have been above normal in the north, normal to below normal in the center, and well-below normal in the south.

The extent of the damage wrought by the flooding on Friday and Saturday, in which three people were killed, only became apparent late on Tuesday after a tour by the government's relief agency, INGC officials said.

Highlights

Food insecurity is increasing in Chicualacuala and other parts of Gaza, where people are surviving mainly on wild foods. The livestock ban, issued because of foot and mouth disease, is further undermining food security by reducing household income normally used to purchase food in a drought year like this one. Unmet food aid deliveries make the situation even worse in the Upper Limpopo.

In Northern Inhambane, first season production is a near total failure in all districts visited by an assessment team from CARE. The consumption of wild food is widespread in most places.
