Unprecedented swarms of voracious locusts to hit East Africa, Mideast, leaving behind barren earth

In just one day, a swarm of locusts the size of Paris could eat the same amount of food as half the population of France
A real plague of pests has been forecast for the region that saw unprecedented rainfall over the last three months of 2019, with the scale of it reaching well beyond the Horn of Africa, where it all started.

A United Nations report, cited in a press conference Friday, warns that petrifyingly large swarms of locusts are expected to hit East Africa, and the timeline is no less frightening - in the next few months, making it the worst infestation in Ethiopia for the past 25 years, and in Kenya in 70 years.

The invasion poses "an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods" in the area, says a report by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), adding that the issue is "extremely" acute in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Somalia, where locusts have already descended in eye-watering numbers - up to 150 million jumping critters per square kilometre (0.39 square miles.)

The man- elephant conflict in Odisha seems to be worsening by the day with a district in Odisha on Friday declaring shutting down of about 600 schools in a mineral-rich district after a stray tusker killed 2 persons on Thursday evening.

Jajpur district education officer Krushna Chandra Nayak said the district administration ordered closure of more than 600 schools in Korei, Danagadi and Sukinda blocks as a precautionary measure after the tusker killed 2 persons on Thursday evening. "The elephant is hiding in a forested area somewhere close to Jajpur town. We do not want to take any chances with the safety of the school children and thus ordered one day shutdown. This could be the first time that so many schools were shut down in the district due to elephant attack," said Nayak.

Odisha forest and wildlife officials said the 10-year-old tusker that strayed from a herd from Keonjhar district few days ago had gone on a rampage through Korei block of chromote-rich Jajpur district on Thursday evening. As the agitated villagers tried to drive it away lighting torches and bursting firecrackers, the tusker ran into Sankachila village where it tossed 62-year-old Chintamani Ram and trampled upon the head of 55-year-old Iswar Das, both of them snacks sellers from a nearby village. Both of them immediately died. At least 10 other villagers were also injured in the stampede as the elephant rampaged through.

Delays in the vegetable harvest and severe impact on citrus crops

Many vegetable fields in the Spanish Region of Murcia have been flooded after more than two days of intense rainfall.

The abundant water covering part of the leafy vegetable crops, as well as the broccoli, cauliflower and artichoke fields, is making it difficult to carry out the harvesting tasks. For many producers, it will be impossible to enter the fields in the next few days, so delays in harvests and shipments are expected.


The intense cold and the cloudy days are slowing down the vegetative growth, which is taking a toll on the supply. This is significant, taking into account that Murcia is the main producer for this type of vegetables in Europe during the winter months. Broccoli and cauliflower prices are the ones that have risen the most so far since the temperatures started falling.
