In the last 30 days, nearly all of Central America has experienced below-average rainfall, as the largest moisture deficits (<25 percent of normal) have been mainly observed in the Gulf of Fonseca region, parts of southern Honduras and western Nicaragua. The drier-than-average rainfall has been preceded by a poor Primera rain season which has reportedly led to degraded ground conditions and crop losses earlier this year. —CPC/NOAA

2.1 Million Displaced in Nigeria: IOM

Posted by feww on September 6, 2015

‘Intensification of attacks by insurgents’ raises Nigeria IDP total from 1.3 to 2.1 million since June

More than 2.1 million Nigerians or 300,000 households are now internally displaced in northern Nigeria, based on Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) of International Organization for Migration (IOM), said a report.

“The increase in the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from the 1.3 million recorded in the June DTM report can be attributed to the intensification of attacks carried-out by the insurgents, as well as to improved access to previously inaccessible areas of Borno State, where the IDP population is now well over 1.6 million.”
