Flooding in Ethiopia

April 15, 2007
Ethiopia

For the second time in less than a year, eastern Ethiopia faced flooding in the wake of heavy rains, this time starting April 9th. The previous floods came at the end of the rainy season in August and September 2006 and caused extensive damage throughout the country. This month, rains once again triggered flooding around the Gemeri and Abhe Bid Lakes near Djibouti. The floods filled desert wadis and normally dry salt pan basins. The rainfall has spurred plant growth
across the desert.
