DR-2016-000118-KEN Drought Kenya Available secondary source documents analyzed indicate that food security situation is wanting in 19 arid and semi-arid counties in the country. There are indications that the situation is likely to worsen further by January 2017. During the long rains season between March and May 2016, there was heavy flooding of River Tana, which washed away crops and delayed planting amongst the communities living along the river in Garissa and Tana River, resulting in reduced household level food security and dietary intake. Farming communities in marginal agricultural areas continue to have typically low income due to the recent below average agricultural season. As the lean season progresses these communities will continue to rely on the markets for food access. Short rains are the primary production season in these areas, it is expected that poor performance is likely to exacerbate household acute food insecurity with more households moving to even crisis levels.  
FL-2016-000117-ALB Flood Albania Since 7 November 2016, heavy rainfall affected Albania, especially the northern regions of the country. River flows have been rapidly increasing and worsened by illegal constructions next to river basins causing streams of water to descend into towns. The heavy rainfall has made the water levels of the Drini and Mat rivers which feed five hydroelectricity power lakes built on the rivers (Fierza, Koman, Vau i Dejes, Ulza and Shkopet). Authorities have been obliged to open the emergency gates to release the water from the lakes. The rain is nevertheless falling and the flooding is spreading to the Southern region ( Vlora and Fier areas) with the water level of the Vjosa River rising. In these areas 25 houses have been affected and the families have been evacuated from their homes. 
EQ-2016-000116-NZL Earthquake New Zealand A powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake has jolted New Zealand's South Island and triggered a tsunami, sending people running into the streets in a panic amid a series of aftershocks. At least two people died in the series of violent quakes. 
EP-2016-000115-GHA Epidemic Ghana The first cases of cholera were detected on 21 October 2016, in the Cape Coast district, Central region when a case- patient presented with acute watery diarrhoea. The next day there were two case-patients with similar symptoms also in Cape Coast district. The number of cases detected in peri-urban communities in Cape Coast Metropolitan have continued to rise from 36 cases on the 26 October, to 117 cases on 30 October. By the 2 November, the total number of cases had risen to 172 with zero deaths. The exponential increase in cases indicates high transmission potential of infections in the peri urban communities. 
FL-2016-000114-EGY Flood Egypt Heavy rains over the past few days have resulted in flooding parts of Upper Egypt and the Red Sea coast, affecting the governorates of South Sinai, Red Sea, Sohag, and Ismailiya. According to official estimates as of 29.10.16, 26 people have been killed and 72 injured as a result of intense flooding and related hazards. The torrential rains, which began late on Wednesday, coupled with exceptionally high winds, have forced the authorities to shut four sea ports in Suez and Port Said provinces and to close some schools and main roads. Heavy rains are forecast to continue into early next week. Upper Egypt and Red Sea mountainous regions, impoverished areas with poor infrastructure, receive torrential downpours annually in late October and early November. 
DR-2016-000113-KEN Drought Kenya Most ASAL counties are experiencing some degree of drought stress as the dry season draws to a close. Areas in the south-east and the coast are the most affected since they received below-average rainfall during the long rains season. One county (Kilifi) is in the alarm drought phase, while all others are in alert or normal, with a generally worsening trend. In parts of Kilifi, Garissa, Lamu, Kwale, Taita Taveta, Tana River, Makueni, Kajiado, Narok and Marsabit there are now significant shortages of pasture and water, and in some cases livestock mortality. The food insecurity situation is exacerbated by conflict in some counties, the most serious case in the previous month (September) being along the borders of Isiolo and Garissa where pastoralists' convergence is common. The prospects for the coming months will be determined by the onset and performance of the short rains season. If the season is below average, as currently forecast, or its onset is late, then the drought situation will become significantly worse, with impacts on health and nutrition, household purchasing power, and security. The implications of a poor season are particularly worrying for the marginal agricultural counties which are short rains-dependent. The NDMA in collaboration with county governments and other stakeholders has activated drought contingency plans in seven counties and is supporting all counties to coordinate their response and plan for a possible La Niña event. 
EP-2016-000112-SLB Epidemic Solomon Islands Since August 2016, an unusual increase in dengue-like illness, including the number of NS1 positive cases, has been observed through the National Syndromic Surveillance System of the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MoHMS).

The upward trend is related to enhanced surveillance sites as well as a real upward trend in cases.
