Drought Hits Part of Ethiopia

The New York Times published on 18 October 2015 an article titled "Ethiopia, a Nation of Farmers, Strains under Severe Drought" by Jacey Fortin.  The author attributes the drought to the effects of this year's El Nino, a water-warming phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean . 

Afar Region has been especially hard hit.  About 8.2 million people are in need of food assistance.  It is the worst drought in Ethiopia in more than a decade.
