Both of the rainy seasons failed in East Africa in late 2010 and early 2011. Between October and December 2010 (left), rainfall accumulations were several hundred millimeters below the long-term average (1979-2000) in the southern Horn of Africa. Rain shortfalls were more severe and widespread in the long rainy season (right).
