Search operations for 44 people still reported missing following a December 12 landslide on the island of Java (Indonesia) continue despite heavy rainfall and dangerous conditions (ReliefWeb). Torrential rain triggered the landslide that swept through Jemblung village late last Friday, sparing just two houses, according to reports (ReliefWeb). As of December 17, the number confirmed dead had reached 64. Landslides during the monsoon season (October-April) are common in Indonesia and rainfall is expected to increase until January (ReliefWeb/Reuters).

October through December may be Africa’s rainy season, but a delayed onset and erratic distribution of rain throughout the season has prolonged drought conditions and negatively impacted agriculture in some southeastern countries (CPC). Prolonged dry weather delayed planting throughout Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi, and poor soil conditions persist in Kenya, Somalia, and Madagascar. As the season comes to a close, rainfall is expected in the region over the coming week which may alleviate dryness for some of the affected areas.

Current Hazard Warnings

Drought: Kenya, Somalia (Southern), Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, United States (Southwest), Jamaica

Biomedical: West Africa

Flood: Scotland, England (Northern)

Severe Weather: Canada (New Brunswick, Quebec), India (Northern), Greece (Western), United States (California)

Volcano: United States (Hawaii), Cape Verde
